Windows Makes Me Blue

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.
