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.

If 3/5 year Windows releases are, in most cases, are "alpha" software... becoming yearly or, as someone suggested, "rolling release", what should we call it?

Pre-Alpha? SSR (Screaming Stage Release)?
