Are You Feeling “Blue”? Apr01

Are You Feeling R...

  What does this code name “Windows Blue” mean to me? I want to dig into it but I tend to steer away when information is released in this fashion. As it becomes more “official” I’ll dig in deeper. This is partly out of respect and in part I’m simply tired...
