Windows "Today at the JP Morgan Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in Boston, Tami Reller shared with the audience that the update previously referred to as 'Windows Blue' will be called Windows 8.1 and will be a free update to Windows 8 for consumers through the Windows Store." They really didn't have much of a choice, but good news anyway.

Windows is not made by a shareware releaser, but a massive corporation.

What has this got to do with anything .. exactly nothing.

Now they decided to go on a yearly release basis, good for them if they cope the pace. I bet that at their level of expertise, especially since they are following their own standard, they could ensure a minimum of code quality and functionality. At least I hope them all the goods in that matter.

They can cope with the pace or they wouldn't be doing it. Because they have a proper testing framework, proper test cases and proper tools to do them with.

You guys pretend Microsoft is a start-up that doesn't know what it is doing. Windows releases these days are painless compared to the 2000/XP/Vista days ... and you guys make snide remarks about their competence.
