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.

But we absolutely can't stay on Win32 forever.


Although considering there's been 64-bit versions of Windows since 2001, they don't seem in much hurry to move purely to a 64-bit OS with no 32-bit counterpart.

Frankly, basically just about every software vendor has handled the transition to 64bits poorly.
