There has been a lot of controversy over Windows 8, with one of the main complaints being the lack of a Start button and the operating system’s focus on touch gestures, but the rumoured Windows Blue update was said to fix all of that and bring some welcomed changes, now it’s been officially given a new name.

The Windows Blue update will be known officially as Windows 8.1 and will not only be coming to Windows 8, but to Windows RT powered devices as well. The update will apparently be free and become available through the platforms’ application marketplaces. It will bring back the famed start button as well as bring some new features and a lot of bug fixes. A public preview of the update will commence on June 26, when Microsoft’s BUILD 2013 conference kicks off, with an official release coming a bit later in the year.
It remains to be seen if Windows 8.1 will make Windows competitive again, but who knows, maybe Microsoft has something special lined up for once…
