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.

Nope, they are going to a subscription based model with constant upgrades instead of monolithic upgrades every few years. This means the OS will be in a constant state of fail. By the time they stabilize one version, they will auto-upgrade you to the next, undoubtedly breaking all kinds of crap in the process.
