Recently at the D9 conference Microsoft demonstrated then next version of Windows.
“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. ”
In the demos, Microsoft showed off a some of the new interface and features. This video shows off some of it.
Microsoft also officialy announced a new conference this September called Build Windows where they will be sharing much more information with developers regarding Windows 8. In fact, most requests for additional details about Win 8 generates a “learn more a Build” response.
Since these announcements there has been a lot of speculation by individuals on what this means for current technologies and future development. While I’ve heard some very interesting interpretations by people, I’ve also heard some things that I feel are completely inaccurate. However not knowing all of the details myself, I’m not in a position to say what is accurate or not, but would encourage everybody be cautious about what they hear and read based on this early information, and of course…. “Learn more from Build”`
