Microsoft Previewing ‘Windows 8’

Noting Julie’s article today, we demonstrated the next generation of Windows at the D9 Conference today, internally code-named “Windows 8.”

"Windows 8 is a reimagining of Windows, from the chip to the interface. A Windows 8-based PC is really a new kind of device, one that scales from touch-only small screens through to large screens, with or without a keyboard and mouse."

Also see our news today from Computex…

"… at COMPUTEX, Microsoft is showing off more than 130 new, innovative Windows-based devices brought to market by more than 50 of its hardware partners. In its booth, Microsoft showed off nearly 100 PCs, either newly available or soon-to-be-released, ranging from ultraportable thin and light notebooks as well as small and always-connected companions to secure business laptops, high-performance entertainment notebooks and high-end gaming rigs. PCs, phones, servers, TVs, handheld specialty devices — they’re all here. New designs, advanced technologies, innovative components, and new computing trends point the way forward for the Windows device ecosystem."

Enjoy. 😉

    This is not what I want?! This is a Tablet OS!!

    It should be called Microsoft Tablet, or Windows Tablet. Windows 8 should have, we'll – Windows!

    If this is the future of Windows, I'm sticking to Se7en and UNIX. This OS on a Tablet – Perfect, on a computer with without touchscreen, crap..

  3. The interface is quite different from what customers are used to but I believe that once the learning curves are met everyone will enjoy this new version of Windows 8. I hope I will get a chance to beta test it to check for stability and bugs as I did for Windows 7
