    “If you’re pragmatic about using the Windows operating system with a keyboard and mouse - there’s no rush. Wait and see what ‘Windows Blue’ has in store for us before you upgrade,” the company says in a recent report.

    I know I will wait for Blue to hit the market before using it. I may even upgrade my laptop from Window 8 to Windows 7.

    I have never been a fan of touch screens, except when using a tablet.

    All my laptops and desktops both home and at work have Windows 8, none of them having a touch screen as I like my displays to be about 80 cm (1.6 feet) from my eyes making a touch screen impractical.

    One reason why I like windows 8 is the Start Screen and its flexibility. It is so extremely easy and fast to use with a scroll wheel mouse; no longer do I have to click and click and click through folder hierarchy in Start Menu to find what I need, now everything I need to access is there in a wink of an eye and one click.

    If the 8.1 a.k.a Blue has a Windows 7 style Start button and menu, it will be the first feature in Windows 8 I would like to disable as totally useless.
