The news comes as many home and commercial Windows users are only just beginning to get their heads around Windows 8, which was launched in autumn 2012 and was hailed as a rather dramatic departure from its most recent predecessors, including Windows 7 and Windows Visa. It’s thought that Windows Blue will improve on some of the innovative new features introduced via the app-based OS but will roll out a new version of the Windows kernel which aims to boost performance and reduce power consumption.
Interestingly, it’s also thought that the global software giant will allow Windows 8 users to update their operating system free of charge when Windows Blue is finally launched later on this year.
A representative from IT support company Sprint Integration has commented on the forthcoming new version of Windows.
“We embrace change here at Sprint and look forward to seeing what the new OS will bring,” he says. “We’re also glad to see that Microsoft is deciding to compete more directly with huge rival Apple by shortening the release cycle of its products. It seems that rather than spending several years developing a new OS and intermittently releasing Service Packs to improve the system, Microsoft will instead be focusing on improving platforms at a more gradual pace and feeding updates to both home and commercial users on a more regular basis. In our eyes, this can only lead to a better user experience.”
