I guess 'Blue' is the color of The Internet to Microsoft. Though since it's the color of every new technology thing ever these days, that doesn't surprise me. It works well with Mesh, though, which I find myself using a little more every day...

I'd've liked to have seen 'Windows Cirrus' or 'Windows Stratus'... maybe 'Windows Pyrocumulus'... heh

I see OSnews is censoring posts. Good to know.
