The screenshot doesn’t reveal anything about the other features of the operating system but, it does showcase an interesting thing – the version of the kernel. From the image it seems that Windows Blue may have a newer version of the kernel – version 6.3. Going by the updated version of the kernel it is not wrong to assume, if this is true, that the Windows Blue update is going to be an important one like the Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The  Blue update may not only address Windows OS for PC, but also other Microsoft products, such as Windows Phone OS, Windows Server, Windows RT  or services such as Skydrive and the email client Outlook. Analysts expect Microsoft to launch the update this summer, but the Redmond based software giant refused to comment about the matter.

Yet, the company mentioned Windows Blue explicitly, in a job posting Microsoft referred to the update by talked about “enhancing ease of use and the overall user experience on devices and PCs worldwide” notes PC World.
