Microsnooze

by Volker Weber

Some people think that Microsoft is good at marketing. I call b/s on that. "Windows 8.1 Update 1", that's a move from the book which calls products 9.0.1 and 9.0.1 IF1, 9.0.1 IF2, 9.0.1 IF3, followed by -- gasp -- 9.0.2. Not announced, no no.

This Windows 8.1 Update 1 will be "become available in the spring", much like Windows Phone 8.1. You can't really say, because there is a Microsoft conference in the beginning of April, which is also in spring, almost at the beginning of spring. But when something becomes available in the spring, that might also be in late June. And then it needs operator approval and OEM testing and what not. So it might also be available to you when there are no leaves on the trees anymore.

Just take your time, Microsoft.

Still looking forward to Windows 8.1 Enterprise with "kid's corner". With the phone guys at the helm that's going to happen, right?
