Windows 8 build 8432 (fbl_loc) is a build of Windows 8. The Aero transparency was removed and got replaced by a new visual style that is used in the RTM build, but window colorization is disabled by default. The "Windows Basic" (Aero Lite) theme is now hidden by default. It is also the last build to include Desktop Gadget Gallery.

Bugs and quirks[edit | edit source]
Applications[edit | edit source]
Many Windows applications will result in an "Unknown Publisher" warning when opening.
Localization[edit | edit source]
During the hardware portion and the final part of OOBE, the entire text in the British English language appears as US English pseudo-localized for unknown reasons. This quirk was fixed in the RTM.
