It seems Microsoft has been working on something really big and interesting for its Windows operating system. A leaked video from one of the most important events at Microsoft gives us an idea about the work that Microsoft is planning to do on its next version of Windows.

This video was posted by Stephen Chapman from MSFTKitchen who was able to get his hands on a private video from Microsoft’s TechFest event which took place earlier this month. This event is supposed to be an internal event where Microsoft Research showcases and demos a number of new technologies that it has been working on.

This indicates that the company has plans to improve the use and the extension to which touches can be used on the Windows platform.[/two_third]


We extend touch in even more dramatic fashion


The video talks a lot about ‘Windows Blue’ which we assume is the next big thing from Microsoft (the next big update) and ‘Blue’ might be the codename. In the video, we get to see a demo of Fresh Paint for Windows Blue wherein the company has made a new addition called ‘Watercolor.’ According to the company, watercolor and mixed media will be added to its Fresh Paint application.

Thanks to the leaked video, we know that the next Windows has the codename ‘Blue’. There is no saying about when we might get a chance to see this next version of Windows. Microsoft will soon launch a public preview version which will include a lot of improvements, and Windows Blue will bring a major update to the Windows platform including the support for Windows 8 as well. A lot of new stuff coming our way very soon, amaze us Microsoft!
