From the rumor mill: Microsoft to release Windows Blue public preview during Build 2013

Build 2013

According to a new report, Microsoft is set to release a public preview build of Windows Blue during the upcoming Build 2013 developer conference. Microsoft recently announced Build 2013, which takes place June 26th to June 28th in San Francisco, California.

During the announcement for Build 2013, Microsoft made reference to the infamous ‘Blue’, which is the first direct reference to the upcoming platform update we have seen or heard from the software giant. Now, according to a report by The Verge, Microsoft will be releasing a public preview build of Windows Blue during the event.

“Sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans have revealed that the company started work on a “milestone preview” version of Windows Blue earlier this month. The code, a second milestone of the next version of Windows, will go on to form a public preview that will be made available to developers and enthusiasts during the company’s Build conference,” the report states.

Microsoft seems to be planning only one public preview build of Windows Blue, with the final release expected later this year. If true, we have something exciting to look forward to for Build 2013! You can read all about Windows Blue in our dedicated page here.
