Microsoft’s (MSFT) chief technical strategy officer, Eric Rudder, revealed new details about the next version of Windows at the company’s TechFest earlier this month. The executive hinted that Microsoft is considering across-the-board improvements to Windows’ touch capabilities. According to MSFTKitchen, Rudder said the company is looking to “extend touch in even more dramatic fashion” in its upcoming operating system, code-named Windows Blue. Earlier reports have suggested that the latest version of Windows will launch in mid-2013 and include various UI changes to the platform. Microsoft is also said to be considering offering Windows Blue at a low cost or even free to ensure users upgrade.
