Wrong Fonts in Leaked Windows 7.8 ROMs Causing Bugs
Windows 7.8 has been a pretty big deal since it was first shared on the site. In just a couple short weeks, there have been successful ports to the HTC Titan, the venerable HTC HD2, and the HTC HD7. Developers and users alike have been able to play with the newest version of Windows for their devices. Of course, leaks and ports do have their issues, and Windows Phone 7.8 is no different.
