Microsoft to push out yearly Windows 8 updates


The Verge has more details about the long-rumoured Windows 8 successor code-named Blue.

Citing several sources familiar with the matter, they said Microsoft is set to push out cheap or free yearly updates for the desktop OS to keep it competitive with other faster-moving operating systems.

Apparently Microsoft intends to force upgrades by encouraging new apps to be Blue-enabled or not be accepted into the Windows 8 Store.

The OS will likely continue being called Windows 8, and will presumably round out all the rough edges of Windows 8, such as the split in settings between the desktop and Metro side.
