Windows Blue Hit M1

Not even one year Windows 8 is released, Microsoft is now preparing the latest version of it called Windows Blue. This is the first update of Windows 8 in full by the Bill Gates company. Microsoft is working towards a public preview version of Windows Blue.

Sources familiar with Microsoft's plans have revealed that the software giant is aggressively targeting a summer launch date for Windows Blue, ensuring its development cycle is short. Microsoft recently passed Milestone 1 (M1) for Windows Blue, but the company is now readying a Milestone Preview which will form the basis for a public preview. The second stage is called Milestone 2. While the final version will be launched in June 2013.

According to leaked acquired from ZDNet technology site to one of the screen shot leakers, the WZor team (via Winaero.com), there's a rumor that Windows Blue is based on Windows 6.3. I'm hearing from one of my sources that this information is correct. It's version 6.3 for the same reason Windows 7 was version 6.1: It's the version number reported to apps when they query the new platform so that apps know they are running on a new Windows release.

Windows Blue is believed to be the first of a number of annual operating system updates to Windows 8. There also is a Windows Phone Blue in the works that is expected to have the same core code as Windows Blue. (But, just like the Windows Phone 8 operating system, which was version 8.0, the Windows Phone Blue core build number will likely be something different from Windows 6.3.)

Blue is expected to be made available to existing Windows 8 users by the end of the summer, with support for new 7- and 8-inch devices and Internet Explorer 11 built-in. Microsoft is also preparing a Blue update to its Windows Phone operating system and other services as a project to further integrate all of its software offerings.

Traditionally, Microsoft is updating its operating system every three years. Some of the company's engineers to post their status on Linkedln accounts that they are working on the Windows operating system 9. Towards the end of last year, Microsoft launched its Windows 8 operating system, which replaces Windows 7. Windows 8 is the latest version that had a major refurbishment, such as touch screen technology and using box shaped icon. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ZDNET | BUDI | KORAN TEMPO 4154]
