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.

Yeah, I thought it was, but apparently they are only focused on Linux, with a experimental branch for FreeBSD.

Which makes sense, the desktop is even less alive on the POSIX non Linux OSes. They could do it, considering its free software and what not, but I doubt there is much of a business case for any of them except maybe QNX.
