Windows Blue is reportedly ready to enter the M2 development stage, so Microsoft is already trying to schedule a date when the product will officially go live.
According to the same ZDNet report
we’ve already told you about
, Windows Blue is very likely to be released this summer, most likely in August.
Surprisingly, the Redmond-based technology giant isn’t planning on introducing any developer or consumer previews, but instead it wishes to bring Windows Blue directly to the market.
It’s going to be a major upgrade for Windows 8, rather than a new Windows contraption, as Microsoft is also reportedly working on Windows 9
, the next standalone version of its operating system.
As usual, these are all rumors, as Microsoft decided not to talk about the Windows 8 successors at all.
