Windows Blue to be released next year

Windows 8 was just released last month and Microsoft is already reported to be working on their next Windows OS codenamed ‘Blue‘ which is set for release in mid-2013.

Windows Blue is rumored to be Microsoft’s standardized OS that will bring UI changes and a better upgrade solution across Windows and Windows Phone platforms. Instead of getting a new version of Windows every other year or so, regular updates will be pushed annually at a very low-cost or even free. This kind of approach makes it easier for users to make an upgrade and is similar to what Apple does with iOS.

Once Windows Blue is released, Microsoft will be releasing updates to the Windows SDK that will run on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8. Microsoft will then stop accepting apps that are specifically built for Windows 8 to force developers to start building apps for Blue. Existing Windows 8 apps will still be supported.

    Oh sh*t! What is this? Is this really going to happen? I am really excited for this update to come. New UI’s for the Desktop Interface?

    Same debacle as Vista or worse than Vista, whatever! Typical Microsoft, why can’t you just accept that the PC era is already over. Even banks such as BDO and HSBC are stuck with XP and 2000 respectively!

      kung nakakakita ka ng mga PC na stuck n sa XP or Vista di kasalanan ng provider ng OS un.. kundi ung mismong Company na gumagamit.. gumastos sila pra sa mas mataas na specs na pc pra walang abirya.

    Hindi nyo ba maintindihan? Eh mga ungas kasi kayo! go buy a dictionary, LOL. I’ll let you both morons in a secret, the reason microsoft will release a blue edition is because para nde nyo na marecognize yun difference between a BSOD and a blue colored desktop! LOL

    • lemonheads says:

      malinaw naman kung sinong moron at close-minded. HAHAHA! Ikaw yun!

      Sa tingnin mo titigil at maggigive-up ang multi-billion company like Microsoft kung pumalpak ang Windows 8 or Blue? Business yan uy. Hindi yan basta basta iniiwan. At least sila hindi.. ewan ko lang sayo. 90% parin ang PC users worldwide. So anong “PC era is over” ang pinagsasabimo. Baka limpak limpak ang pera mo at puro Apple products ang gamit mo. Ikaw na ang maraming pera! WOW!

    So soon? Parang patterned with Windows 7 because of Vista failure.

  6. Oni says:

    palpak kc windows 8

    • lemonheads says:

      to early to tell na palpak ang Windows 8. Have you tried one? I think its nice, productivity-wise. if ever palpak ang Windows 8, for sure may backup plans ang Microsoft.. hello.. Microsoft yan. At kung palpak nga, in your own opinion.. why? please explain.

    • whatdidyousay says:

      Kakalabas lang ng windows 8, palpak na? In the first place, nung nilabas nila ung developer preview last year, maganda yung naging feedback kaya tinuloy tuloy nila ung official release ng windows 8.

  7. lemonheads says:

    I’ve read somewhere na any Windows Blue ay update Lang, not an entirely new OS.

  8. What’s up, its nice paragraph concerning media print, we all be familiar with media is a fantastic source of data.
