Windows First looks at Windows 'Blue' have revealed an upgrade composed of cosmetic fixes, suggesting that Microsoft may be blowing its chance to turn the tide on Windows 8 blow back, and make good on its promise to truly 'rethink' Windows 8 with the release of Windows Blue. As a result, InfoWorld has issued an open letter to Microsoft to consider Windows 'Red' -- what InfoWorld is calling a 'serious plan' to fix the flaws of Windows 8, one that could rescue Microsoft's currently flagging promise to deliver a modern computing experience on both PCs and tablets.

Ok I got as far as this:

"Windows Red Duo: A dual-boot version of Windows Red for hybrids." and lost interest. Devices are changing, and Windows 8 has been designed to take advantages of new devices, why would you ever think dual booting between two versions of an OS would be better than the current setup?

I wrote the above and then figured I should probably flick through the rest at least: so many of the suggestions in this article seem to be bunk, and the author seems to have not mentioned that some points are being addressed by blue. I'm not a Windows nutbag, but none of the 'fixes' suggested in this slideshow seem to offer any real improvement IMO.
