Every large agency has to cater to the public. Without pandering to the common man on the street there would be no common sense in this world. The norm remains and will always retain its quality of being a compromise between two poles. Many armchair philosophers have recently taken to criticizing and lampooning the Windows Blue feature that Microsoft has introduced. Their only alibi us that it is a capitulation to the least common denominator. According to ZDNet
, whatever they say has no value in the eyes of the high tech-hungry masses. They want in on things that give them a chance to fully express their wishes and worries.
The whole story began when Microsoft decided once and for all to introduce a Start Button as well as a boot-to-desktop function on its Windows Blue module. Microsoft has been accused of an about-turn that goes against its basic nature. Let’s face it! Windows 8 didn’t turn out to be all that it was cracked up to be. It was way off the mark and had its many shortcomings which left a lot to the imagination. The newcomer (that is Windows Blue) would be down-to-earth and practical instead of abstruse and obscure in its details. A bit of fine tuning here and there would get the selfsame thing off the ground. And it would of course come in a totally different package that would be named Windows Blue.
The only problem is that there will always be those who criticize, condemn and complain. And these critics are not creative at all. They are like legless men who are trying to teach others to run. Whether they like it or not Windows Blue will arrive in stores towards the last days of June. The good thing is that even for those who were satisfied with Windows 8 the crucial yet subtle changes won’t make an iota of difference. They may carry on as usual. But for those who are into the new and prefer the latest this is the choice they have been looking for all along. It will give them all the tools to operate the Windows Template without the previous hitches. They just have to get the hang of it and become adept at the system.
Microsoft at present is in a Catch-22 sort of dilemma. Can’t live with it and can’t live without it. That is how Windows Blue feels to the executives at the headquarters. But ultimately decisions have to be firmly taken and finally implemented. Microsoft will have to do what has to be done and present something new that already includes in its centre the older experience. And that is what Windows Blue is all about.
