It is assumed that due to leakage wide range of browsers and enthusiasts can now see what should be the successor to the Windows platform-8. In particular, we can already talk about the small but significant changes in the GUI Windows Blue compared to Windows 8.

If caught in the open access assembly present, then, the new platform Windows Blue get some features (including variable size tiles), familiar to users of smart phones based on Windows Phone 8. In addition, further improvements are expected for tablets, including the ability to customize the home screen without having to access the “Control Panel.”

Judging from the available pictures and movies in the system Windows Blue should see the so-called “tied presentation”  (Snap View), which allows you to assign just two windows side by side on the desktop. Every window in this is exactly half of the screen. In addition, you can display on your desktop just four application windows. In fact, in Windows 8 is quite lacking this here windowed mode.

Thus, the platform is Windows Blue should be the successor of Windows 8. This is not a Windows 9, an updated version of Windows 8. According to reports, Microsoft is making every effort to release the update this summer. Blue Series releases for products Windows Phone, Windows Server and other applications and services tied to Windows, expected or simultaneously with the release of Windows Blue, or immediately after this release.
