Windows Blue leaked on the Internet

After months of speculation and rumors regarding the mysterious Windows Blue update to Windows 8, the first proof of the existence of this major update is here – Windows Blue Build 9364 has been leaked online!

The first reviews of the leaked build strongly suggest Windows Blue will bring a number of enhancements and changes to Windows 8, most of which will deal with the user interface but there will be some changes to the OS kernel as well including improved power management for increased power efficiency.

Here’s a quick list of the first changes Windows Blue will soon bring to Windows 8:

  • Internet Explorer 11
  • Improved modern UI PC settings
  • Enhanced SkyDrive
  • Swipe up from Start Screen to access list of applications
  • New split-screen application options
  • New tile sizes
  • Picture frame mode
  • New gestures
  • More personalization options
  • New application – Alarm
  • New application – Movie Moments (an application for editing videos)
  • New application – Calculator
  • New application – Sound Recorder

An interesting feature of Windows Blue Build 9364 is that it comes labeled as Windows 8 Pro, which confirms the earlier suggestions that Windows Blue is an update to Windows 8 and not an entirely new operating system.

Windows Blue is expected this summer.
