The Verge: Microsoft Planning for Annual Windows Updates

Tom Warren, The Verge:

A big part of Windows Blue is the push towards yearly updates for Microsoft’s OS. Microsoft will kick off an annual upgrade cycle for Windows that is designed to make it more competitive against rival platforms from Apple and Google.

Good to know, but what option do they have? At this point, Microsoft not only has to plan for annual updates to compete with iOS and Android (and that other OS from Apple, name slips my mind — the desktop one), they also have to, you know, actually do it.
