Even though it was initially rumored that Microsoft wouldn’t release a testing version of the upcoming Windows Blue, sources familiar with the matter now hint that a public beta is very likely to see daylight in the coming months.

According to reports published by Chinese media, Microsoft is working on a preview build of the Blue update that would be offered to all users as a free download.

Since the first major Windows 8 makeover is expected to hit shelves this summer, the preview version is very likely to be unveiled in just a couple of months, as Microsoft needs time to collect and analyze the feedback it receives.

Windows Blue won’t come as a standalone operating system, but only as a major update for Windows 8, with many people calling it “the first service pack” for Microsoft’s new Windows contraption.
