Screenshots of two Windows builds that are known internally as Windows Blue, have been leaked, which reveal that Microsoft has bumped Windows kernel to 6.3, where as Windows 8 uses kernel 6.2.


Windows Vista used NT kernel 6.0, while Windows 7 jumped to 6.1, and Windows 8 to 6.2. A switch to 6.3 with Windows Blue suggests this is a major revision to Windows.

According to TheVerge, I was one of the first sources of this image.



btw, I am sure that this image is fake.

Take a look on winver

"Windows 8 Pro"

Run your winver and see that is written in there. No Pro/Edition notice, just OS.

So, as i said in my post, it can be photoshoped.
