If you thought Google is the only one to bring the next beast of OSs, then you should consider that twice. That said; followed by Windows 8, the Microsoft is rumored to launch a new operating system, dubbed Windows Blue.
Expected to debut around mid-2013, the new Redmond’s operating system, sort of, will be a low cost upgrade and usher in an annual upgrade system similar to the one Apple uses.
Furthermore, interested developers will have to switch to Windows Blue if they want to keep creating Windows Store apps.
The upcoming OS will be providing Windows users updates on a more regular basis. Only time will tell whether the Microsoft will be pushing their next OS at a low price point or even for free. Stay tuned for additional details on the matter.
