Windows I'm back from my vacation to the US, the jetlag has mostly passed, so back to OSNews it is! So, Windows 8 has been out for only a little while, and we're already moving on to the next 'version' of Windows. Version is between quotation marks, because unlike previous releases, this doesn't appear to be the a monolithic single release. Instead, Windows Blue, as it's currently codenamed, is more of a procedural change than a technical change: Windows is moving to yearly releases for all devices - PC, tablet, phone.

This is totally unrelated to Windows Blue, but where did you visit in the USA?

As for Windows Blue, I like the idea, but only if it completely free for Windows 8 owners. It would be outrageous to expect Windows 8 owners to pay for another OS only 6 months later. Still, as a happy Windows 7 user, I really see no reason to upgrade to 8 on my traditional desktop PC, so I'm not sure why I would upgrade to Windows Blue either. Bring back the Aero theme (at least as an option, I quite like it) and the TRADITIONAL START MENU for us WIMPy keyboard and mouse users.

Salt Lake City, then by car a three-day roadtrip to Vegas, where we stayed for six days.

Oh what the heck! You were just a 4 hour stone's throw away from me! Would have shown you the sights in Phoenix. ;)

[edit]

Well, maybe more like 5 in vegas. Depends on traffic and the location of police. ;)

...You missed some great skiing in Park City!

Next time you're out that way, you should swing by the Grand Canyon (if you haven't already). Truly amazing to lay your eyes on in person.

First the Mormons, then a roadtrip to Vegas? Now that's a way to party!
