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.

Are we positively, totally sure that people will stop buying computers and use tablets for everything ?

I have an android tablet (N7) and really, for all sort of things, a tablet is just crap.
Surfing the web, reading and managing emails, writing documents and copy/pasting images, multitasking... You just get an inferior experience than a 400€ laptop.
Many applications are just dumbed-down interfaces to the actual websites.

Maybe Microsoft is overreacting.
Maybe people will get bored with tablets.
Maybe Microsoft should make using a laptop or desktop a better experience (high DPI screen, application repositories...)

What Microsoft is telling is that they don't believe in traditional computers anymore. It is, IMHO, a terrible message. Apple is certainly very happy about that, their laptops are not large tablets.
