Rumor - Microsoft to Release Windows Blue, the First Free Windows Ever

Quote:
Although Windows 8 was launched last month, Microsoft is already giving the final touches to Windows Blue, the new Windows iteration that’s apparently supposed to come with some really huge surprises.

Citing sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans, The Verge reports that Windows Blue is going to be released in mid-2013 and will comprise significant UI changes, most likely supposed to address the controversial Windows 8 features.

......If rumors prove to be true, Windows Blue won’t be available as a standalone OS, so users would need an older Windows to upgrade.

Yeah GEBW,

It'll be a shortcut to a BSOD. One you can depend on.

Microsoft wants to Crush Linux then push Apple out of the way. Windows will then be open source, to a point. Windows will crush Apple it's coming.

Windows Blue? Shouldn't it be Windows meets Linux?

Well..the operating system isn't entirely free when it seems you have to have an older Windows operating system in order to upgrade to Windows Blue.

Who's willing to test this one out (if even released to the public)?
