Windows 8 hasn’t completely replaced Windows 7 yet, and Microsoft is already prepping up a big update to the operating system – the long rumored Windows Blue, which is said to bring a lot of improvements and unification throughout MS’ ecosystem. The OS update leaks in the internet to give us a preview of what to expect.
The leak goes by the name of Windows Blue Build 9364. It’s not meant to be the complete version or anything, but it surely does present improvement. The notable ones are:
- Internet Explorer 11
- Smaller tiles for the Start screen
- Calculator & Movie Moments app
- Side-by-side multitasking
- Improved PC Settings, added Search
- Better SkyDrive integration
- Accent color selection
Folks over at WindowsMania.pl has a video on it. It demonstrates all these new features well, although it’s in Polish.
The rumors about Windows Blue unifying Phone, RT & 8 is not yet evident here. Maybe we’ll get to see that sooner or later with another leak.
