As the Microsoft Build 2013 Developer Conference comes right around the corner, a new Windows 8.1 build screenshot has surfaced and has been going around on the web. With the new start button present, this build has a notable “Windows 8.1 Milestone Preview” watermark on the bottom right-hand corner and is build 9428.
This certainly means we should have it (or a build similar to this one) on Wednesday, when Microsoft is expected to release the Milestone Preview to the public.
The build was compiled on June 12th, so it’s about a week old. This could mean that Microsoft has not yet finished the compiled build. A rumor is circulating that the Milestone Preview build is 9450, but we do not know for sure.
