Windows Blue was reported last week, and while the info was sparse, some of it sounded pretty solid. We like the idea of a yearly update cycle for Windows, much like what we see in mobile, and with MacOS and many Linux distros. We like the idea that it could initially be free, and more solidly unify mobile and desktops. And now, there is a rumor that the update could help add support for 7 and 8" tablets, which are sorely lacking in the Windows ecosystem.

Windows 8 and Windows RT has done well to add plenty of 10"+ tablets, hybrids, and transformers to the mobile landscape, but not everyone wants a mobile device that big. As Google, and Amazon have proven, there is a large market for tablets around the 7" and $200 marks.

While Microsodt Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 have both only been on the market a short time, but rumor has it that Microsoft may already be getting ready to release an OS update that supersedes both to an extent, called "Windows Blue", and it may even replace Windows 8 in just a few months. It sounds a bit crazy, but it may be true.


Apparently, the word is that Windows Blue will look much like Windows 8 with just some minor UI tweaks, and will likely keep the Windows 8 name, but everything behind it could be very different, including the pricing. Microsoft wants Windows Blue to be on everyone's computer, which means it could even be released for free to ensure users upgrade. From there, the idea is that Microsoft would offer regular yearly updates which will be standardized across desktop and mobile devices.

Microsoft is also planning to release a new Windows SDK along with the updates, and will stop accepting apps written using the Windows 8 SDK, although Windows 8 legacy apps will still run on Windows Blue.

Windows Blue was reported late 2012, and while the info was sparse, some of it sounded pretty solid. We like the idea of a yearly update cycle for Windows, much like what we see in mobile, and with MacOS and many Linux distros. We like the idea that it could initially be free, and more solidly unify mobile and desktops. And now, there is a rumor that the update could help add support for 7 - 8" tablets, which are sorely lacking in the Windows ecosystem. Windows Blue is rumored to launch during this year 2013 but no launch date yet!
