Windows Blue - the next Windows
I admit that it took me a while to get used to Windows 8 because it feels like there are two operating systems living on a single device. When do you choose one operating system vs. the other? I generally default to the traditional desktop, but I find myself using the Windows 8 apps more. I can't even call these "metro style apps" since the term metro isn't being used or isn't recognized by Microsoft.
Windows Blue is going to be an improvement over Windows 8 and will also be optimized for even better battery life. So, all-day computing will be a reality for those who are always on and computing.
Remember Windows Vista? It launched in 2007. Then, Windows 7 launched in 2009.
Windows 8 launched in 2012.
I predict that we'll see Windows Blue launch in 2014.
Operating system upgrades are a huge headache for IT departments, but we're living in an era where the technology is changing so rapidly that you'll be left behind in a hurry if you can't keep up.
