Good news about the boot to desktop and start menu!

There are no hard rules about the version numbers. The difference between Windows 8 and 8.1 will certainly be less than the difference between 4 (95) and 4.1 (98) 5 (2000) and 5.1 (XP), etc...

However, Microsoft has indicated they intend to have a more aggressive Windows upgrade strategy:

This is kind of how it was in the 90s when desktop PCs were rapidly evolving. Blue to me seems more like a 98 SE or 95's OEM SRs.
