How legit is this?
EDIT: Source was here but they removed that screenshot. In this article you can see another screenshot with build 9220 in it and kernel version 6.2 .
Another visual difference is Windows logo color and window border. On my Windows 8 borders are thicker. It is possible that borders were altered via registry but who knows
The other one in Chinese (6.2) is more real but ATM not sure if real.
For me, the numbers seem to high and it's too early.
They took them from 6.1.7600 to 6.1.7601 for sp1 in Windows 7
So the 6.3 is more like a Windows 9 than a sp1 (blue).
So 6.2.9220 sounds more real but still: it's a huge difference. In Win7 terms it's like sp20.
Is there so much to fix? Man! than it's serious.
Did we at least know if Blue will be an update or a new OS ? As I already said, Windows 8 is supposed to be the last Microsoft OS name Windows.
But the NT kernel being notched up to 6.3? What?! This is Windows 9, not 8. Then again, lots of thing we don't know...
From what I've heard, the Desktop might actually get some cosmetic updates!
Kernel version was my key point why it could be fake. On the other hand MS could switch to anual release of their OS so it would not be so weird to se new kernel version much more often.
Maybe it is the same situation like with web browsers. Look at Chrome and Firefox - for every little change they change version number.
Again, Win7 was 7600 (7601 SP1). Windows 8 is 9200. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if MS goes into five digit build number.
From what little I have read it looks like Blue will be a lot of fixes plus some feature updates or additions. Rumors that MS wants to go to a yearly update to add new features and not wait on a new release of Windows. I guess we will find out this summer.
They don't need a fix, they have to redesign the all thing to make it more appealing and more usable. This all thing look to have be design for prisoners, it's good if you have no other choice, well, I'm free and I want more freedom with my PC,Tablet or Phone.
