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.

Microsoft can fix windows by making windows open source and licensing their source code under a free permissive software license like the BSD or MIT license.

Of course doing that means Microsoft can no longer obtain billions of dollars licensing windows through their oem deals, which are really just copyright licensing fees (copyright law is the source of Microsoft's monopoly power).
