Microsoft: Awake at Last! But Blue

Microsoft: emphasis on Start Screen shackled Windows 8 | News | TechRadar.

Sounds like our friends in Redmond have figured it out and predictably:

Windows 8 is another even numbered release of Windows – In the past they’ve blown it in one way of the other in just about every even numbered release since their hybrid DOS Windows 2.x and 3.x

1- Windows 95 – Good, stable, a winner

2- Windows 98 SP1 – Ouch

3- Windows 98 SP2 – Fixed it quick

4- Windows Millenium – Totally unnecessary.  Bad idea at the time

5-  Windows XP – Perfecto.  Longest running version to date

6- Windows Vista – Ouch2

7- Windows 7 – Lovely but at the end of an era.

8- Windows 8 – Ouch3

9- Windows Blue (8.1) – Hope the quick fix gets ’em back in the game
