Blue, Windows 9, who the hell knows anymore. A new forum post from a person who goes by the handle “rav.a”, shows a build number for Windows Blue. Allegedly, development is now at 9347, compared to the last known build number of 9317. Apparently, this early build of the OS will expire on January 15, 2014. It’s...

It seems like Microsoft is working towards a public preview version of Windows Blue. Leaks on the web have revealed that Microsoft is aggressively targeting a summer launch date for Windows Blue. In addition, it seems that Microsoft recently crossed Milestone 1 for Windows Blue and is now preparing a Milestone Preview...

There have been more screenshots of Windows Blue revealed lately. Specifically the screenshot above showing what could be Build 9319. At this point, it’s important to remember that we have no idea if this is Blue or Windows 9. Microsoft hasn’t (to my knowledge) confirmed the existence of a Windows Blue yet so take all...

While we don’t know diddlysquat about what Windows Blue is, what it does, or even whether the final product will be called by this name, reports do suggest that Microsoft is internally hard at work on the first major Windows 8 makeover. In fact, if reports are to be believed it may even be half way there, on target...

The website MicrosoftPortal.Net has started reporting on what MIGHT be the first screenshots of Windows 9 in the wild. They note that the M1 build kernel has been given a bump to 6.3 (Windows 8 uses kernel 6.2). In addition, the images are supposedly from Windows 9 build 9319; Windows 8 was build 9200. This might be a...

Windows 8 has been here for a bit now, and that means that inside of Microsoft’s headquarters attention is already turning towards the next “big thing”. With that in mind, what do we actually KNOW about Windows 9? Very, very little at this stage. Still, let’s attempt to gather what we’ve heard and draw a bigger picture...

Windows 8 just came out and that means Windows 9 is still a few years away, unless you believe that Windows Blue is actually Windows 9 and not just Windows 8.X. Even though we have a long ways before truly major features arrive with Windows 9 (or so I would like to imagine), I thought we’d take a look back at a few...

Windows 8 sales continue to be slow, and many users continue to push the idea that the start menu needs to return. It’s not going to happen. There are several reasons, but the biggest reason is that Microsoft is riding on the new UI’s ability to give them a piece of the mobile pie. They aren’t backing down. That said,...

So there’s a lot of speculation and conjecture flying around the web around an update to Windows 8 coming down the line called “Windows Blue”. The latest round of bullsh.. rumors state that this update will not bring back the Start Menu and will make tweaks to the Windows 8 desktop and taskbar making the UI appear more...
