Microsoft Windows 8.1 Roll Out Imminent; Will No Longer be Called Windows Blue

April 3, 2013, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

From Windows 95 onwards, the blue colour has been a regular aspect for almost all Windows versions. That’s why all began to think that the upgrade for the Windows flagship OS, Windows 8 would be called Windows Blue.

But it looks like the software giant likes to keep it simple and has decided to call it Windows 8.1. It has been a humongous task for Microsoft to convenience users to shift from Windows 7 to Windows 8. So it is definitely going to be a hard task for it to make people move to Windows 8.1 too.

The upcoming OS does have a lot more functionality and design enhancements than Windows 8. But will that encourage people pay for a new software? Let us check it out.


With the release of Windows 8.1, what Microsoft is trying to bring about is a new trend rather than a subtle change. It is looking forward to release upgrades on a yearly basis as it will make it among the most updated OSes of all time.

Microsoft will be rolling out its first Windows 8.1 public preview at the Build developer conference that is slated to be commencing by June.

The company has already started registration for the conference. Windows 8.1 will be part of the conference, but MS is also expected to detail further changes across its software and services at Build. Xbox, Windows Phone, and Windows Server are also going to be either previewed or mentioned at Build 2013.
