Have you heard of Windows Blue?

It's not released yet, but it's basically Windows 8 SP1, and you gotta pay for it since they're adding "features" in addition to the usual "fixes". What do you think?

I think it's idiotic to rename is as such, in addition to charging for it.


Also, in addition to this useless Windows 8 version of Office 2010 (Office 365), Office Gemini is coming out for Blue. What a smart way to rename their products! ^_^

Update 2:


I think it's idiotic to use Apple products.

    Blue is a development codename and not the final name of the update. It will simply be called Windows 8.1 and be sold as Windows 8.

    So they are going to sell it but it will replace the current version of Windows 8 that's on store shelves now. In addition, there's no word on if it will cost current users of Windows 8 to upgrade to 8.1. I'm guessing that it will be a free download.

    Office 365 is the subscription version of Office 2013, not 2010. Office 365 does make sense for those who have multiple PCs since it only costs $100 per year for up to 5 computers. I personally don't have any use for it since I prefer LibreOffice.
