Free at last! Windows 8 is public

//Build is underway, the Windows Dev Center is open for business, and information is rolling on out. So I can finally share what I’ve been working on the past couple of years. I’ll go into more detail as the week progresses and sessions unfold, but I highly recommend the ApplicationData and Package samples as a start

//Build 2011

Big day – //Build starts tomorrow. Session information supposed to start showing up soon. Exciting times.
