Did Windows Blue Blow it? - PCSTATS.com Did Windows Blue Blow it?

"After Microsoft’s Windows 8 was widely criticized by users and tech experts alike, the tech giant is prepared to release an updated version in the form of Windows Blue. The revamp is slated to be released this year, but last week screenshots of the latest build were posted to a Polish tech forum. Tech Expert Karl Volkman of Chicago’s SRV Network, Inc., weighs in on the leak.

“Windows 8 was not well received by the public, which makes this Microsoft’s chance to regain some relevance in the industry,” says Volkman. “Windows Blue brings a lot to the table, including a larger focus on tablet and mobile use as opposed to desktop. We’ll have a clearer picture of Windows Blue’s capabilities upon its release, but from the leak it’s safe to say there are many improved features.”

The Windows Blue leak shows a Start screen that offers options to personalize the Live Tile appearance. It also includes increased control over color preferences, new style settings options, and an additional view that allows more options for viewing apps side by side. The leaked screenshots appear to make it easier for tablet users to change preferences without resorting to the desktop Control Panel. In addition, Internet Explorer 11 also appeared in the leak of the new build, although with little detail.

“There is still a lot of speculation surrounding Windows Blue, but the initial leak seems to be promising for better usability and customization,” continues Volkman. “From the new version we can see Microsoft is heavily invested in improving the tablet experience, inevitably furthering the demise of the desktop.”

Karl Volkman, the Chief Technology Officer of SRV Network, Inc. in Chicago, Illinois, is an IT Professional with over 30 years of experience."
