Windows Blue winver

It finally happened - today, on the 57th birthday of Steve Ballmer - the major update to Windows 8, "Windows Blue" has leaked on the internet. The leaked ISO is the installation image for 32-bit systems. The system includes numerous changes related primarily to Modern UI and Modern Apps in the OS.

The file name of the leaked image is 9364.0.FBL_PARTNER_OUT13.130315-2105_X86FRE_CLIENT. As is obvious from the build tag, it was compiled on March 15, 2013 and has been designed exclusively for Microsoft's partners. The size of the ISO image is 2.63 GB.

The main changes are as follows:

  • It is possible to snap/arrange two Modern-applications side by side at 50/50% ratio,
  • Several new bundled Modern Apps (such as alarm clock, calculator, and sound recorder),
  • Two versions of live tiles - small (as present in Windows Phone 8) and large rectangular ones (occupying two rows),
  • Extended personalization settings
  • The ability to backup the settings of the working environment to SkyDrive.

Also 'PC Settings' have been updated, featuring new options which allow a hierarchical way of navigation between Modern apps.

There are some changes to the Charms Bar:

  • The "Devices" charm now has an option for Play To,
  • You can now share a screenshot of the running application via the "Share" charm.

The leaked build lacks access to the Windows Store, and it is not possible to activate it. We do not recommend our readers to download it.

We will publish more information about the changes in 'Windows Blue' as more details come to light, so stay tuned. You may be interested in some screenshots below:

    We need a resource link to try it out on a virtual machine. We would like to experiment on it if you don’t mind providing this for us or creating a .torrent.

    Does it have the “Windows Blue” label on it? By color, it looks like Windows Navy.
