    After being denied by Microsoft of it's existence, we have a proof of it. The alpha build of code-named Windows Blue has been leaked. Windows has continued to develope the Metro UI making the following changes:

    > Bigger lite size allowed, spanning two full size tiles one above the other.
    > Smaller tile size allowed, sizing 1/4 th the size of small tile.
    > Can snap two tiles in 50/50 screen
    > Can snap 4 tiles, each occupying 1/4 th of the screen.
    > New alarm, music and calendar.

    A new personilization slider has also been included to allow customization on the fly.

    Internet Explorer 11 has also been include in this build, however, and changes in the browser are unknown.

    The leaked ISO is a 32 bit version of the Blue and occurrence of bugs is surely expected.

    Windows Blue(screen) looks like just another marketing gimmick.. i currently have Windows 7 ultimate and i am gonna stick to it untill there comes a game that doesn't run on it, or companies release hardware that doesn't work with it. Its perfect.

    I think Windows 8 is for the XP users who have not upgraded since 13 years.

    Count me in.

    Also i hate the fact that every app runs in FULL SCREEN mode.. Why ? Games are fine running with full screen mode and makes sense..but for apps, its useless.

    It is still shitty usability wise.
