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.

The issue is this:

Say the desktop market is something like 500 million users. They are expecting the tablet market to be something like 3 billion.


The deal here is the tablet market is a growing market that is expected to dwarf desktop computers. This does not mean desktop computers are going away... it just is a less interesting market.

Now if only Microsoft would accept that they are now officially IBM we could get on with life.
