Microsoft Retools Windows 8

SAN FRANCISCO (May 7, 2013)--Microsoft is retooling Windows 8, the latest version of its Windows operating system, to address the complaints and confusion that have been blamed for deepening a slump in personal computer sales.

The tune up announced Tuesday are part of a software package known as "Blue" scheduled for release in time for the holiday season that’s meant to fix perceived shortcomings in Windows 8, a radical overhaul of Microsoft Corp.'s ubiquitous operating system released last October.

Windows 8 is supposed to make Microsoft a more prominent player in the growing mobile device market while maintaining the Redmond, Wash., company's dominance in PCs.

But Windows 8's new design emphasizing interactive tiles and touch controls seems to have befuddled as many people as it has impressed.
