Windows 8.1 build 9369 now circulating on private trackers

It was only a couple weeks ago that we got our first serious look at Windows 8.1 (Blue) with the leak of build 9364 but it looks like build 9369 is now being passed around on private trackers at this very moment.

We have already seen a few images of the build leak out and we suspect that as the build gets into more users hands, we will likely see 9369 hit public trackers in the near future. Obviously, we do not know exactly when this will happen but build 9369 is following the same pattern as build 9364.

Even though it is a new build, we would not expect any huge changes as it is only a small build number increase. Yes, it is possible one of the intermittent builds could introduce a new feature but if you are expecting a dramatic difference between 9364 and 9369, you will likely be disappointed. 

We will keep you updated if/when build 9369 finally makes its way to the public domain, but for now, keep your eyes and ears open.

Windows 3.11, Windows 95 OSR2, Windows 98 SE, need some originality, I mean they went the right way with Millenium Edition, XP and Vista, too bad the ones with a name were terrible, save for XP of course

So many "leaks "... I still remember that Windows 8 leaks weren't many , a few builds floating around in development periods.

Microsoft does it again like they did with Windows 7. More leaks , more new features displayed etc.

This is Blue , Frankenstein was ugly too!

Well, Sinofsky's not here this time...

800 million plus me are contented with Windows 7.

Yup and half a billion people are contented with XP..

Thank you for giving us another 2 decades of people on the same OS... stalling development and causing unnessesary fragmentation.. But keep it up you future XP-user!

Windows 7 - 2009
Windows XP - 2001

Your response proves you are still living at home with your mom and don't actually have a job in IT. The fact that you don't even have a clue about Microsoft product life cycle which indicates Windows 7 premium business editions such as Professional and Enterprise are supported until 2020, while home editions are supported until 2015.

I am using premium business editions on all my machines at work and home. Which means, I have every right to stick with the platform I choose, because it is well supported by Microsoft. I can move to Windows 8 when I choose. I have something called volume license with software assurance. You don't, you have to depend on your parents allowance, or mow lawns to purchase new versions of Windows every 3 years.

So of course you will be glad to move to the next release, because either way, you don't want to be stuck on Windows 8.

hmm, unless I'm missing something isn't the big deal here, is that this is the 64 bit version leaked?! wasn't the previous leak just 32 bit?

I mean, I understand Neowin's purpose, but I have to be honest and say that of late (like the past 2-3 years since I've been around for a long time) it does seem to be practically "advertising" the fact that software piracy - and it doesn't matter if the OS isn't available for sale, so don't even go there - is such a norm these days that it gets front-page coverage every time a new build of <whatever> happens to appear.

While no direct links to such software get posted, I have to wonder why this happens at all, and it sure as hell ain't just because "It's Windows related, and we report Windows related news, that is all."

But then again, CNN's front page is loaded with most nothing I actually consider relevant news in the first place either, go figure.

I'd think it's more advertising for the Os than for piracy.
How to keep people interested by that win 8 thing ?
Then let's talk about the leaks ...

not to be a smart ass but duh torrents get everything first..this is not news just a promotion for pirates to start searching

The thinner borders that i posted about on the forums only affected certain windows in the last build. File Explorer and stuff you see in this screenshot are all things that were not affected (maybe MS haven't got around to changing everything yet) so this probably still has thinner borders but theres no window up that shows it.

Thanks for the heads up

I hope they do that on time. Well... It's not like is THAT important, as long as we can change it as we do on Win 8.

Ahh, ok. Thanks.

They need to bury this OS - and move on to W9 - These builds will be nothing but eye candy changes to a marketing fiasco that has tried to recapture advertising via the disaster of BING ! Let it go MS.

What makes you think they already haven't started working on W9. If they wan't to stick to their timeline of making W9 GA in October 2014, with a couple of preview builds before that, I would say they're already quite far in its development phase.

Please shut up already, no one cares. Go use your favorite OS, whatever that is. No one is forcing you to use Windows 8.x.

But windows 8 greatly need some eye candy. I was disappointed , when I saw the design of win 8.

Then download and install it.

People have no problem spending hours if not days completely modifying their Linux distro of choice to fit their needs.
But when Windows doesn't come out of the box exactly as they want it, bad bad micro$oft.

Oh I am glad I am not the only one who had it with the Win8 moaners. I am tired of their bull**** I just exit conversations with "I don't care" or "Go to Linux"

Could this be the one of reasons for the difference in market share between Windows and Linux?

I love the name, Windows 8.1.

That and the OS is a nice throwback to Windows 3.1.

Or Windows 8 SE?

Same! I haven't been interested in Windows 8 at all, but I think 8.1 will be a bit like 7 and go a long way to fix nuisances. Major OS revisions like 8 often need subsequent releases to get done right; it's just too much to take on in a single release no matter who's behind it. Might be time to install it in a Boot Camp when it's released. Windows 8.1 in 2880x1800 can't be that bad!

Microsoft has a winner on their hands. This summer will be exciting for sure.

I don't doubt that Windows 8.1 will be the highlight of your summer.

Considering the Xbox reveal is also in June I'm definitely interested. I hope they intend to give out info for a lot of other stuff they've been keeping quiet about at the same time.

You say "is also in June" as if you know for a fact that it's being announced in June. If so, I must've missed that news. Last I heard a reveal at E3 was a rumour. As was a reveal in April some time.
