Windows Blue: a video preview of what’s next for Windows 8
Windows Blue made an early appearance on the internet over the weekend and we’ve had a chance to experience some of its new features. The upgrade to Windows 8 looks like it’s going to bring a host of improvements, fixes, and some new built-in apps too, but the biggest changes are on the UI side. Microsoft now supports smaller Live Tiles and the company is changing the way you arrange them on the Start Screen. Moving ever closer to Windows Phone, you can pick between large, medium, and small Live Tiles for applications. The only exception is the desktop tile that includes an extra large option.
