Microsoft Plans to Update Controversial Windows 8

Microsoft executives are dropping hints about an update for the oft-criticized Windows 8 scheduled for later this year. Codenamed “Blue,” the update would enable the company’s software products to work on devices with smaller screens. Julie Larson-Green, Microsoft’s corporate vice president for Windows, said during the Wired Developer Conference that a public preview of the Windows 8 update will be available prior to the Microsoft developers’ conference in June. This Windows version has come under fire for its new user interface, which International Data Corp., a market research firm, says is significantly contributing to the PC market’s erosion. Although there have been rumors the impending update might address some of the rampant criticism, Larson-Green claims there will be no major changes. (CNET -- 1)(ZDNet)(CNET -- 2)(Windows Blog)
