In a recent job posting, the software giant Microsoft has confirmed the existence of its up and coming Windows Blue. The latter is expected to work on a yearly upgrade model, and at a relatively low cost to anything the company has put out before.
According to industry observers, the mysterious Windows Blue is expected to roll out across Windows and Windows Phone and provide customers more regular updates across its entire ecosystem.
The advertisement in question, which was spotted by the Verge, reads that the operating system will build and improve upon such of its aspects as the start screen, windowing, personalization, and application lifecycle.
In addition, there is another, separate posting for Windows Phone which also mentions Windows Blue. Despite the fact that Windows 8 only just shipped last October, Windows Blue is believed to emerge in the middle of 2013, in what might be the most brazen rebranding ever: the blue color, up until now, used to be associated with the dreaded Blue Screen of Death.
Since it’s the early days, just whether Windows Blue will be a success is unclear, but the experts believe that all sorts of initiatives to win consumers over as the software giant represent its attempts to make its mark on the “post-PC” lot of devices like smartphones, tablets, desktops and personal computers. Once Microsoft has a single standard OS, it will obviously be easier for the software giant to market many of its products as part of a single, linked ecosystem. Just like Apple.

|Knowing windows it will be a rebranded version of windows 8 with a few widgets like windows 7 and vista,Bill Gates must love the BSOD since he has seen it so many times.|
|@ #1 - If it's alright to ask, and if you're using any machine running Windows Vista or 7, how many BSOD's have you had? Me, personally, in the past decade just 1 and it was because of my own doing that caused Windows to have a brainfart.|
I'm not a fanboy of any OS, but I do get tired of people saying Windoze sux because of the BSOD. Well, first off, it's not dead. Reboot and you're good to go. If it keeps happening, it could be a hardware issue, not software. If it's not a hardware malfunction, it's probably a virus. If you're on the internet and can't use some basic protection then you just might deserve the BSOD and getting shafted at a PC repair shop.
Apple can be just as bad. Sure, they don't get a BSOD, but they have been known to give you the NECW ... Never Ending Color Wheel. I haven't used an Apple in a long time, do they still have the color wheel spinning when thinking? Blah, doesn't matter, Apple users know what I'm talking about.
Anyway! I see no need to go past Win7. It's beautiful. It's stable. It's intuitive. If it aint broke, don't try to fix it.
I have a nightmarish vision, though...
One day any WinOS PC connected to the internet will be FORCED to update/upgrade or else the system will cease to operate.
Might seem ludicrous, but this is a crazy world we live in.
|I have one word to say UBUNTU|
|Agree @2 .. I have put together a number of desktops over the years and the rare BSOD was always due to a bad Hardware confiq.|
Seen my first BSoD in 2 years on a friends (Due to bad HDD).
We totally bypassed Vista and have a test PC running Win 8 which I am not liking at all. In its day XP was it, but Win7 is a dream to use and so Stable.. Its a workhorse for me and hardly rests. It will be a sorry day when I am forced to change.

|Windows XP lasted for 11 years! And now they want us to upgrade from the far superior Win 7, to the sketchy Win 8 after only 3? THEN they bring out a NEW OS 6-9 MONTHS later ... ARE THEY F'ING CRAZY, OR JUST PLAIN STUPID?|
There's NO WAY I (or many OTHER) People are going to upgrade until it's absolutely necessary. [Eg, I'm a GAMER, and the ONLY reason I upgraded to Win 7 was because Just Cause 2 (a game I had been anticipating) didn't run on XP, therefor an upgrade was necessary to play.]

|I'm not a fan of any particular OS. I own Macs, PC's running Windows 7, Ubuntu and Linux Mint. Whatever I need for a particular task, nothing more, nothing less. I don't like Windows 8. I made my Windows switch from XP, skipping Vista. I think I'm gonna hold and wait a couple of years before I think about any Windows upgrade. I don't play games, don't use social networks and just use my Windows PC's for CAD and 3D software. So, as long as those apps run in Windows 7 (that I like VERY much), there's no rush at all. My media creation and consumption is done in Macs, my daily office work in Linux, so...|
|@2 : I use XP dual booted with Fedora which is my main O/S and I have purely for his school work installed win7 on my sons PC,although he is versed in Linux and Debian due solely to school IT saying he has to be versed in all windows products from operating system to MS office for his computing and ICT syllabus.I am old enough to remember Bill Gates unvieling of win98 and his BSOD and the regularity with with we had BSOD`s up till win98 se,I am no great lover of windows although it has slowly improved over the years despite being released too early for financial gain in almost every release needing service pack after service pack until stable and at a cost for the O/S that I could easily build a new PC for,all of the main systems used to day linux,windows,debian are all unix based originally so not much in it in that respect what does toast my buns is the charge asked for every application windows when a quick repo visit or trip to sourceforge will get you any apps you require for nothing and without the spyware, malware incorporated by windows O/S.|
|In regards win 7 it must be said my daughter has it on her laptop and she can navigate it and use it well for a woman of 20 with bi-polarity and extreme autism with an IQ of 57 which shows anyone can use it.|
|Windows Blue if rebranded or updated from win8 will face damnation if it has to have a yearly licence since one payment should be more than enough and it was for this very reason and the malware/spyware in the operating system that the French government and schools went over to Linux from windows some years back.|
|Linux and Fedora core has been a stable desktop in my experience from fedora8 onwards and now is on fedora 18,I am still on 15 and it in all versions to the one I am using now it has proved stable and has the same abilities to add,remove and update as windows from its repositories as well as 100000`s 0f free working applications and projects @ sourceforge.net.|
|here is a shortlist of O/S for NO 2 :sinclair spectrum,win95,win98,win 98 se,xp,win7,win8.Fedora 8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,kanotix,knoppix,backtrack2,3,4,5,suse novello (windows backed),lindows,Ubuntu,DSL,Mandrake and maybe 10 or so of the more obscure O/S as well as Mac`s.|
you can find me on software tips and tricks forum under other operating systems,I stopped counting after I hit 40 of them,I was a sourceforge tester and developer for some time and as not all applications are windows specific I often did multi boots having several systems on my HDD to work from.

|windows 8 pro made me fill like new and in this week visiting here I get couple virus like Trojan:JS/Seedabutor.B so now sleep until I read which anti virus work best if what windows give me it no safe. it not the first time specially visiting torrents web sites what all know kind of web sites are for enjoy and be human. more over, talk about Linux made me fill bad about Linux don't have drivers for bright monitor adjust like good drivers old Ubuntu's had and I remember Crunch Bang linus OS full of bugs with some sites for fix and play a lot surfing for short time and nobody buy it like google competition e.g testing maybe for buy I didn't here nothing yet like who won. same like test what you can at distrowatch.com OS 7 days page hit ranking made you thing what windows is.|
|I might suggest you try comodo internet security (firewall +antivirus) free version since windows is renowned as the most targeted operating system in the world and comodo is better than Norton (symnatec ) in its definition delivery and update times.|
Zone alarm security suite also has a free firewall and antivirus solution which is win 8 compatible.bon chance .
|Trojan:JS/Seedabutor.B is a redirection trojan that hijacks your browser and other areas to steal your password,i.d etc and is prevalent on social networks and other sites it is quite serious and so quick termination by a non proprietary security suite as soon as possible is recommended.|

|Comodo Internet Security is a solid performer. I agree with Embolism that it's a must for any Windows user.|
|seriously, unless Microsoft wants to design a Gaming OS that you can boot down or into with a dashboard similar to X-Box so you can utilize the true power of your PC and not have play games washed out by all the background services running. It's been 30 years Gates, jump on that wagon. Until then microsofts gonna burn out. I don't know which comes out faster another crap version of windows or the latest cell phone.|
|Windows 2000, no not M.E! was the most secure and stable OS I had ever seen from Microsoft. XP, Vista, 7, and 8 are nothing but GUI Garbage. Preferably would rather run an OS without all that stuff because it really consume resources. Backgrounds, Transparency, Fancy crappola you don't really need. But you do sacrifice alot to use it. Windows 2000 simple, sleek and sexy in my opinion. I did a lot of coding, editing and graphic design on it. The gaming to boot. Was much better. Funny how Saints Row the Third knocks out all your GUI interface on Windows 7 in the background when you load it, so it can have access to as many resources as it can.|
|If anyone has any virus, malware, spyware, ransomware, blaster, hijacker, trojan or any other problem with intrusive destructive software. Don't use your random run of the mill I promise to clean your PC software. I have used and have recommended ComboFix for about 7 years now. Google it. It's free, it's a 4mb download and a 10 minute process to do its job, that I swear will clear up and fix any issue you have. 4mbs makes it sweet cause I can download the newest update of it on my phone at a fly and pop to my pc via USB in safe mode with command prompt. It's that easy to use. Again ComboFix.|
|combofix to my knowledge does not as of yet have a solution for win 8 which is the O/S in question with the java script trojan and comodo and zone alarm have their own built in scanners not the proprietary windows ones you are required to download so one overall solution not only to remedy the situation but to prevent it happening again.|
|one of the advantages of Comodo is that it sandboxes all unknowns and has a stateful scanner which after installing the suite and updating will not allow nasties or unknowns onto your PC without your making it allow such as well as regular updates to both anti-virus and firewall,the free version works well or for those that want everything it has to offer it costs around 4 dollars for the full version.|

|yes...maybe windows defender stop Trojan redirect to see new browser tab where appearing girls pictures. most Trojans in my life it when I installed old Macintosh os from some website very before from now new Macintosh return for see how was in a laptop and was like totally full of bugs and I just uninstalled and surprise of me windows found all kind of virus from apple because I search virus and I reinstalled like 2 times to clean windows. same of slackware Linux hard to fix after uninstall because disappeared all like dead system. sorry...bla,bla comment and enthusiastic pc time go fast.|
|Most definitely do you need anti-virus more so in windows although even in Linux it`s always prudent to use chkrootkit once in a while.With such virus`s as Confliker and others still spreading across the internet a good firewall and A/V is an essential in windows as your reference to java script trojan should indicate and bear in mind what type of trojan it was ,it jacks your browser sending your details so best attend to that in the first instance since it is a severe alert trojan and not one you should allow to continue,good luck.|

|I found this igfxtray,igfxpers,hkcmd and constangard in startup. I google igfxtray and some web sites say is combine Microsoft and Intel and work like display driver. more over, if I remove igfxtray maybe display driver don't working properly for be like integrate graphic mobo. many said it like hidden and like you said it hide under and some considered a Trojan. I download security task manager for free while search for igfxtray and recommendation download from my antivirus say pc it clean. finally, forums or articles comments looked anger on many comments to MS & W8 and what I can say it where oS's w8... 2 and 4 years old pc's working well in this present.|

|for me BSOD was always hardware/driver related|
|the best way to play .mkv files effectively and correctly is to not use klite codec pack xp codec pack. Theyre garbage for playing .MKV I used " haali.su/mkv/ " Haali MKV Splitter which installs a codec used for .MKV playback without skipping or tearing issues. Crystal Clear High definition and Quality playback.|

|if I follow original piratebay e.g not all .mkv video are play good or no format detect and same .avi not all video player devices play movies from torrent sometimes as well. read comments under torrent movies help for don't download fake or formats where need time to understand doing right OS don't like. all dvd companies maybe have copy rights for it own format like .ts movies where as the soccer game to watch today.|
|VLC player still ships with all required codecs from AVI,FLV,MKV and Mpeg so no need of windows media player or Klite codec packs .|
|just wasted a day on Fedora 18,installed ok and updated graphics etc but had an issue playing flash due to runner and firefox 19 kept crashing like a dodgem car so back pedalled to fedora 14 and did a yum update with one line of script and installed it graphics and all, in around 25 minutes,both free and non free repo lists,lol.||
