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.

That's just the initial setup. After that updates arrive, you install them, sometimes have to do a reboot and then no new updates immediately appear.

I agree most (if not all) Linux distributions require just one round of updates after a clean install, but with Windows it's just some extra work at the start and then you're set.

It seems all the extra Windows updates are mostly related to .NET version 4. When you install that for some strange reason new updates keep appearing after each reboot.
