Microsoft is now ready to talk about Windows 8

To-date all we heard from Microsoft about Windows 8 officially was silence – except ofcourse the preview at the D9 conference. But it looks like Microsoft is now all ready to start a dialog about its next iteration of its operating system – Windows 8, on a regular basis.

Towards this end, Microsoft has launched the Building Windows 8 blog or simply B8 blog.

Windows 8 reimagines Windows for a new generation of computing devices, and will be the very best operating system for hundreds of millions of PCs, new and old, used by well over a billion people globally. It is also important to know that we’re 100% committed to running the software and supporting the hardware that is compatible with over 400 million Windows 7 licenses already sold and all the Windows 7 yet to be sold.

Looks like we can expect a public beta release of Windows 8 sonner than we thought.

Will it be released at the BUILD event to be held this September? Lets hope so!

    If that is a picture of what we can expect the desktop to look like…they can keep it. It is as ugly as a fart in church…

    Like everyone else I know very little about windows 8 but it is my understanding from the [very] little information available that youwe will be able to have a desktop just as it is today. With wallpaper and icons if that is what youwe want, and at the moment this iswill be my wish as I too do not like the look of the graphic shown. As far as I understand this “screen” is also configurable and can be set as youwe would like.

    At the moment I am trying to think of this desktop screen as just an update on the libraries in windows 7. A shortcut to all yourour favourite programs. I am more than likely wrong in this assumption but personally I will try to keep an open mind about it.
