Microsoft Confirms Windows 8 "Blue" Update as Unit Sales Hit 100 Million

Windows 8 has been panned by critics


After months of rumors, Microsoft on Monday confirmed that it is readying an update to Windows 8 for later this year.

Code-named Windows Blue, the update will enable Windows to run on a wider range of devices (read: smaller-screen tablets). In a blog post, Microsoft said the update will also respond to some criticisms of Windows 8 and Windows RT, but the company didn't go into specifics.
