After a long silence, Microsoft has finally acknowledged Windows Blue. The long-rumored but unannounced update for Windows 8 gained attention months ago, thanks to slip-ups in job postings and interviews.

However, speculations about Windows Blue gained traction last weekend when an early built became available on file-sharing sites. It even comes with complete features that make the Windows 8 start screen more handy than ever.

In relation to this, Corporate Vice President of Corporate Communications Frank Shaw mentioned Windows Blue in a TechNet blog post.

Now, the look ahead. With a remarkable foundation of products in market and a clear view of how we will evolve the company, product leaders across Microsoft are working together on plans to advance our devices and services, a set of plans referred to internally as “Blue”.

Although Shaw did not disclose which services will be receiving a Windows Blue update, there were rumors that it will land on Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows Phone 8, Windows Servers, as well as in multiple online services.

It is expected that more will be revealed about Windows Blue in the upcoming Windows BUILD 2013. The developer conference, meanwhile, is scheduled on June 26-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
