Windows I'm back from my vacation to the US, the jetlag has mostly passed, so back to OSNews it is! So, Windows 8 has been out for only a little while, and we're already moving on to the next 'version' of Windows. Version is between quotation marks, because unlike previous releases, this doesn't appear to be the a monolithic single release. Instead, Windows Blue, as it's currently codenamed, is more of a procedural change than a technical change: Windows is moving to yearly releases for all devices - PC, tablet, phone.

So Windows8 will be like Windows Phone 7? If you buy into it you will be left behind? I am sure developers will be thrilled to have to change SDKs yearly. Also, Microsoft rarely gets a new OS right the first time (see Windows95, WindowsME, Vista). Now we will have a new OS yearly? What will that do for businesses? While this yearly plan might work for Apple, the PC world is much more complex with many more players. I doubt this will go smoothly.
