Windows 7: With Windows Blue, Microsoft may (finally) do the right thing

MS is facing a big challenge.

There is the recent mobile/portable market, which they missed so far.

More than that, the race is on to get the users into cloud services = subscriptions.

The potential rewards are enormous. At the users expense, of course.

MS can't sit by and let Google and Apple carve that up between them.

If MS released another solely desktop os, that doesn't get anyone into their online services.

If they release an os just for tablets/phones , they are fighting head on with the established players who have a massive lead.

MS are trying to leverage their massive desktop user base into the clouds. They are trying to do that with the 8 metro thing.

They messed it up so far.

They are able to have another go.

I have a thought??? That probably worries some.
What if a company was using Microsoft cloud for data and programs and decided they wanted to use another cloud provider; how smoothly would that transfer go if it could be done at all.
Just think of data alone. Transferring data to a cloud and checking for data corruption after done. Then transferring it to another cloud owned and operated by a competitor cloud company and checking for corruption and then back to company for their use. Now if their is corruption what does the company do about it. Cloud company A blames it on Cloud company B and Cloud company B blames it on Cloud company A.
Cloud company A says they can't help because they no longer have your data and Cloud company B says they can't help because they received corrupted data from Cloud company A.

Do you understand why I get headaches? I think of things like this.

If I was running a data cloud storage company I would make sure in the small print the usability or not of the service was purely the users problem. Also anyone in their right mind would never just have one back up? For example my music collection is backed up on 4 different PC's . Also backed up on original CD's and burnt CD's and DVD's for the on-line stuff. If you are going to use the cloud, better make rainy day plans to use another cloud based provider somewhere else. So here in the US I would use a provider based here and also one in Australia or New Zealand about 12 hours different time wise. Not that I intend too, I prefer to have my stuff locally where I know nobody is trying to look at it. The cloud services had better have seriously good security and personal who work there are not part time script kiddies.

I do believe as the Cloud wars start you will be seeing a lot of what you call script kiddies to compete with pricing. Security to me has always been a big question. Who will protect your things better than you?

The 7" tablets are already in the works! As far as which version you likely wouldn't see Pro on any 7" model however. That's for larger models that offer a little bit of expandability over the smaller embedded OS type devices.

The fruit company only has one OS to put on their stuff! As for Windows the tablets and other small devices wouldn't have any use for the increased hardware support as well as other additional features you see in Pro or Ultimate over HP. You likely wouldn't be found running the XP Mode on tablet either! Why put on features you can't use anyways? Keep it simple says MS!

As for MS, they need to know that simple is the way Aero in Windows 7 handles your windows, organizes stuff and enables the posibility to see live previews or looking for the progress of a download hidding other windows by just hovering over a preview. Simple is having all your configurations organized in a window. Simple is having a search bar in start menu, frecuently used programs and ALL in a simple and little menu that organizes everything in folders and subfolders. Simple is keeping your desktop CLEAN!

Dumb... is Windows 8...
