Now try say that headline three times fast! Word on the internet is that Microsoft is planning a public beta of it’s “Blue” version of Windows 8, which sports a few UI tweaks and brings Windows RT closer to the desktop than before. There are leaks of the alpha builds already on the net but if you try one out, do it in a virtual machine – these kinds of things are often targeted by hackers looking to create a back door into your system. Updates to Windows 8 include support for lower resolutions, a half-size Snap feature for full-screen apps and possibly a smaller installation footprint. More details to follow this week!
