Windows "The public preview, first reported by win8china, will launch within the next few months, allowing existing Windows 8 users to test and provide feedback before Microsoft readies the final version of Windows Blue. We understand that Microsoft is aiming to only have one preview release for Blue. Features are still being prepared for Blue, but one of the biggest changes is an improvement to the search charm functionality." Whatever. Windows Blue needs to address two things: application loading times and in-application performance, and the Mail application. Everything else is fluff.

Windows 9 already? Soon Microsoft will hit Windows 94 and there will be some confusion.


I kind of miss the XP days, when we were only getting a new version every 6-7 years. If they start releasing every year or two, I've got to constantly worry about whether all of my apps and drivers will still work, if I want to stay current. And most new features that they add, I either have in 3rd party apps already, or I just end up turning off.
