Windows "The public preview, first reported by win8china, will launch within the next few months, allowing existing Windows 8 users to test and provide feedback before Microsoft readies the final version of Windows Blue. We understand that Microsoft is aiming to only have one preview release for Blue. Features are still being prepared for Blue, but one of the biggest changes is an improvement to the search charm functionality." Whatever. Windows Blue needs to address two things: application loading times and in-application performance, and the Mail application. Everything else is fluff.

Hopefully they fix the disconnect between metro networking and desktop networking.

It's a pain to lose connectivity in my Metro apps whenever I VPN into work. I have to fire up outlook or thunderbird to see my mail/calendar. (not a big deal I know, but other apps die as well, weather, news, etc.)
