Windows Makes Me Blue

March 25th, 2013 - 10:45 am

LEAKED: Ten new featured coming to Windows “Blue.”

It’s a curious mix of cool (Super SkyDrive) and WTF (more damn gestures). What Blue looks like to me is that it will be the fully (or nearly so) tablet/touch OS that Windows RT should have been, right out of the gate last summer. The problem is, Blue is the next desktop version of Windows. Except when it runs on tablets. Which it does, if that tablet has “Pro” in the name, but doesn’t if that tablet has “RT” in the name. It also won’t run on phones, which have “Phone” in the name.

This is what Steve Ballmer calls “Windows everywhere.”

It makes my head hurt, and I’m not even shopping for the things.

Followed some of the comments over there. There seems to be a consensus that Win8 -> Blue replicates Vista -> Win7.

Some of the other comments reminds me of a question that someone here might be able to answer about the Start button. It isn't in Win8, and one company even developed an app (Start8) to reproduce it.

My thing is: since forever hitting Control-Escape will also bring up the Start menu. Has that capability been taken out as well in Win8?

It's a floor wax AND a desert topping ... no ... wait ... it's desert topping that tastes like floor wax.

Thanks. Seriously, naming a OS that's going to remind consumers of your past buggy OSes? Is this more of Steve Balmer's "genius?"
