    Leaked Blue builds - discussion thread ?


    Hi there
    Just wondering if there's a central thread we can use for discussions of "Leaked blue builds" rather than have them all over the place.

    NO LINKS or Sources of where the builds are obtained from though just observations, build numbers, errors / defects found etc.

    We did all this stuff over at W7 during the "Pre-release".

    Seems to me people being people will be naturally curious and of course hunt these leaks down-- and in some cases I rather suspect Ms probably uses these too as an "Unofficial" testing platforms as users out there are likely to have a much broader range of hardware and applications than could ever be replicated in a Lab.

    Cheers

    I agree, we have WAY too many Blue threads in the News forum and several in the General Discussion. I propose such a central forum/thread for those who are playing with it currently to report back and discuss.

    Hey Mr. Shawn/Brink,

    What do you think of adding another "Forum Thread" for Windows Blue; perhaps. . .

    Windows "8.1" Build 9375 is out there !

    Click image for larger version

    The screenshot you see above of Build 9375 was leaked on WinForum.eu, and it confirms that Blue is just a codename for Windows 8.1

    ~edit~

    ... so is 9385, 9388, 9399 and 9404

    Good idea. Interesting thread now and future. I'm not yet pumped about Blue. It seems too soon to go through "it all again." But, actually, I didn't get around to Win8 until actual upgrade time. All the OEM's may be out of business by the time Blue is RTM anyway.

    Port working Windows Store from build 9200 to Blue (x86 / x64):

    1) Take ownership of WinStore folder in Blue
    2) Copy contents of RTM WinStore folder to Blue folder
    3) Restart Windows
