It is rumored that once Microsoft Windows Blue OS is released, the Windows SDK will be fully overhauled to support the new release Blue and the company will stop accepting apps that were meant to run specifically on Windows 8. This move is being done to ensure developers start developing for Microsoft Windows Blue. However, Windows 8 apps are expected to run easily on Microsoft Windows Blue despite the planned SDK changes and upgrades.

“The Verge has learned from several sources familiar with Microsoft’s plans that the company is planning to standardize on an approach, code-named Blue, across Windows and Windows Phone in an effort to provide more regular updates to consumers,” reported The Verge.

Surprisingly, Microsoft has plans to update the OS every 12 months. Microsoft has released a new Windows operating system every few years with stability and security-oriented service packs to keep up the ante released in between. Now it is expected that Microsoft will add new and exciting features on an annual basis to ensure the customers aren’t wooed away by rival platforms like OS X or Ubuntu which offer tons of updates instantly to the users within days of release.

The Windows 8 User interface is quite effective at least according to me!

Microsoft’s approach to updating it’s operating system on a yearly basis will enable the company to compete with rivals Apple and Google which are fast heating up the OS segment in the mobile devices and tablets market. With the release of an update annually, Microsoft will be able to keep pace with the current market requirements rather than constantly playing catch-up since the last OS update.

Or whether, Microsoft windows Blue is an entire new operating system from Microsoft- the Redmond Giant.
