I have seen a couple of second hand computers for sale recently on Gumtree with Windows 8 Xtreme installed on them.
If you google it you will see that it is not an official Microsoft product but basically Windows 7 with a few tweaks. Could this be what he has installed ?

Windows 8 is available but only as a developer version. Wait until the Beta or the final version comes out later into 2012

tigertop2 is right.

There is currently a developer preview version of Windows8 available, but it should be stressed that it's not really suitable for the average home user. It's primarily intended as a help for software developers who might be designing Windows8 application versions.

There is likely to be a public beta download available in January/February of next year.
