MS Planning Annual "Windows Blue" Releases?

The Verge reports that Microsoft is moving towards more frequent OS updates with a product tastefully codenamed "Blue" they say will be a low cost, or even free release that will be standardized across desktops and phones to provide more frequent updates. This is based on hearing from "several sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans," and expands on a ZDNet story from this summer that suggested Windows Blue was more of a service pack. Their unconfirmed report says a licensed copy of Windows will be required to take advantage of this, and a lot of it seems to be focused on how apps will be sold through the Windows Store.

Here's how that meeting went at MS.

Random MS guy: "So, Steve, what do you think we should do next now that we've completely aggravated our Enterprise customer base?"

Balmer: "Oohh... Apple... uuhhh... ooooooohhhhHHHH!!!"

Random MS Guy: "Are you... rubbing that iPad on your dick?"


Anyway, yes, MS, that's what your enterprise customers want. A tastefully codenamed product that standardizes desktops and phones and that you will update every year, so that their IT department can spent its ENTIRE time just making sure all the software still works.

I guess in your Apple splooge fest, you're completely ignoring where you've been getting 90+% of your revenue from? I'm sure that's going to work out just fine.
