    Windows 6.3 build 9319 spotted in the wild


    Since the launch of Windows 8, the string of leaks of Windows builds has all but come to a halt. While we have been hearing quite a bit about Windows Blue, the images you see above are supposedly from the M1 of Windows 9 (unconfirmed). As noted by the post on MicrosoftPortal.net, the M1 build kernel has been given a bump to 6.3 (Windows 8 uses kernel 6.2). In addition, the images are supposedly from Windows 9 build 9319; Windows 8 was build 9200.

    Windows Blue to bring a faster kernel and better search - Neowin

    Oh la la! Looks like Windows 8 Blue is going to bring some new goodies for sure, faster kernel, probably some better Bing search integration, faster boot times, smaller disk foot printer, better metro app scaling, and wait there's more! Internet Explorer 11! How much did you think it would cost?! 500 dollars?! 600 dollars!? A thousand?! No, you can get this snazzy new Windows 8.5ish update for a low low price of nothing!

    So I've read the rumors on Windows Blue but the statement I don't understand is statement regarding the kernel. So what does that mean to the novice? Is it performance related or stability? Or does it mean something completely different?

    Thanks,
    Greg

    It's basically the whole base of the operating system, everything ties back to the kernel. So, if the kernel is more efficient (I'm guessing it's through MinWin technology Microsoft's come across in recent years and developed on) that means the OS as a whole is faster and better and more secure. That's why when vista came out, being built on NT Kernel 6, was more secure than Windows xp's NT Kernel 5, which wasn't too secure. But in Windows 7, the kernel was improved to 6.1 and that's how we get 7 being fast, stable, and secure. In Windows 8, it's NT Kernel 6.2 which is a further optimized kernel. 6.3 though, I wonder what that has in store.

    At least that's what I can tell.

    I wonder if 6.3 will become a true microkernal...

    'Blue' is nice!!!!!!!! Especially if what you say comes out.

    But I thought you wait for the 'Red' version, your favorite color maybe in 6.4...

    Let's see how it goes.

    Love the leaks as it is totally confusing. First they say this is Blue (update to Windows 8) now its Windows 9. Its probably a PR game from MS to peak the interest of the enthusiasts and give the blogs something new to write about. It's a lot better then more stories about what's wrong with MS.

    Hi there
    In the wild these are usually known as the "Black" editions.

    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".

    Cheers

    I hope that was wrong.
    Subscription based Windows?
