Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums


Windows 6.3 build 9319 spotted in the wild

  1. #11


    I don't know squat about writing software and may be totally bonkers here, but I think Blue is an optional addition to 8 Modern UI to address multitasking for business (and others) using MS Store apps instead of legacy programs on the desktop, which I think will be phased out once apps are written. It will be multi-paning much like a picture-in-picture television. One will be able to open as many apps as one needs to use. This might be the new "Windows reimagined".

    Imagine the possibilities. It will be much like the invention of the Start Screen with live tiles updating at intervals. One may have, let's say, a "live pane" with a clock and weather. Another one for email. Another for stock ticker. Another for People app. Another for Calendar. Another for interoffice communication. Whatever one needs to tab through to work on. Of course all this depends on screen real estate.

    Let's say one may drag a pane over to another monitor to work on. Perhaps two. One may be able to configure or personalize this "new personalized multipane desktop" to open at boot just like the Start Screen.

    I think MS did a fine job catering to any one of the keyboard, mouse, touch pad, touch screen with finger, or whatever one prefers to navigate with on their first approach. Can it be improved? You betcha', just as all things can.

    This all may not happen until 9. All in all, I believe Modern/Metro interface is here to stay and will continue to be the future of MS computing.

    Another thing is that companies could easily have apps written specifically for their own needs.

    Also remember that the legacy desktop is now a portal of the new interface.

    Oh that old hippie has some crazy ideas doesn't he?!!

    It's been known for a while now that there is a Blue wave update coming. Whether or not this is Windows 9 or Blue is still yet to be known, but it's probably like a Windows 8.5 type of thing where they release a yearly update that adds some new features and UI enhancements, then Windows 9 later in a year after that or two. Maybe NT Kernel 7 that is a pure MinWin kernel? One can only dream...

    I suspect though -- and I hope I'm 100% WRONG that the next version(s) of windows may well be based on a subscription model -- or at least the updates / service packs might become "Chargeable Features".

    I hope that was wrong.
    Subscription based Windows?
    If they go that route I for one won't be "buying" into it.

    I will switch to Linux before I make annual payments in order to use my computer.

    There isn't an annual subscription, it'd probably be more like the mac model where there is an update available to buy and install, not like Office 365.

    I know, and Windows Blue is apparently supposed to be free.

    But I would be annoyed if I'd have to pay to upgrade every year, and even more if I'm FORCED to pay every year.

    It's almost the same. But it's a good deal I guess.
    Buyable updates... It's the right time to stop the update service on my account if I won't be using it anymore.

    In other news Microsoft announced that support for Blue 2.0 ends today. Microsoft will not issue any more updates or security patches for version 2.0. For continued support you can purchase your upgrade to Blue 3.0, Visa and Master Card are excepted.
