Windows 8.1 Build 9379 screenshots surface

Screenshots of Windows 8.1 build 9379 has leaked which is the fourth copy of Windows 8.1 to have been spotted in the wild, well ahead of Microsoft's expected release in June and closely following behind the leak of build 9374.

The images you see above are of the build 9374 of Windows 8.1 which will be released later this year. As with any leak, we highly caution you from installing the build on your primary machine as these builds are likely not stable and could corrupt any disk you install the files on. 

The previous builds to leak in full were 93699364 and 9374, seeing as this is only a small incremental increase from the last leak, we don't expect to see many changes in this build. With that said, Microsoft could introduce a new feature with each new build so there may be small changes hidden within this copy of Windows 8.1

Microsoft is expected to release a preview build of the platform in late June as part of its upcoming BUILD conference with the RTM release coming sometime in the late summer season.

I like Win 8 myself , it has given me better speed on most of my games and software !
And I do not miss the start button one bit . I'll be keeping it as it runs everything I have put on my system and I have had no issues with it so far. Only took me a couple days to get used to the layout and how it worked .
I will be waiting for the 8.1 version to come out to see how that affects the system .

What's the down arrow in the Start Screen do?

it brings up a message saying "screw you windows 7 users, no start menu for you! Mwahahahhahaha".

I couldn't agree more, don't they have any graphics designers there any more? It's so hideous, even Windows 3.1 was nicer looking. The colors are garish and clash, the flat UI and the red close button is just plain ugly compared to the Vista/7 version.

"corrupt any disk you install the files on." LOL what? If anything, it won't be stable or work as expected, but there's no way a Windows beta can "corrupt" any disk. LMAO

Windows 7 beta famously corrupted all mp3 files.

Corrupting a file =/= "corrupting a disk". Besides, anyone with half a brain won't be installing a Windows beta on any partition with important files.

there is a chance that the NTFS driver could corrupt a MFT table on a drive that is not the OS drive also, as it all goes though the NTFS driver in the end... if its NTFS formatted

Source? By the way, a corrupt MFT can easily be solved with chkdsk /f.

so isn't that what the article basically implied? don't use it with important files.

I never said there was a source, I said there is a CHANCE that it could, you know a unknown bug... something... and chkdks doesnt fix every error, if its bad enough you could wipe the whole MFT table out for all we know depending on the bug

I dont understand why people leak builds that often! From first leaked build till now we didnt see nothing new so far in latest build!

no.. they would leaking x64 builds lol KIDDING.. but not it isn't MS

I actually bet it is, with management changing we start to see leaks again which we didn't have at all with Win7. It's clear some policy has changed and builds are given out to partners more freely.

there were a lot of leaks of Windows 7

he might of meant 8.. It is someone from Microsoft.. but I don't think Microsoft doing it on "purpose" with an eye wink..

all joking aside i actually think MS is behind the leaks .. they know people have a bad opinion of win 8 so they want the buzz that 8.1 is gonna be an improvement before it actually hits shelves

Cause with Win8 Microsoft was really pushing on keeping the OS indoors.
Microsoft has the know-how and capabilities to make sure the OS wont leak, and if it does... makes it either unusable or takes so long to 'hack' that the OS will be released before they get so far.
