Microsoft Opens Up About Windows 8 On New Dev Blog

Illustration for article titled Microsoft Opens Up About Windows 8 On New Dev Blog

Wanting the inside track on the next iteration of Windows, which is expected next year? Microsoft's launched a new blog written by the engineering team, and while they don't give away too much yet, there are some aspirational words:

"Windows 8 reimagines Windows. That's a big statement and one that we will return to throughout this blog. 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."


Everything we've heard about the next big launch for Microsoft is garnered towards a better user interface—whether it's the tablet-support or just the more WP7-style aspect of the design, as you can see in the video above from June. Whether you're a Windows user or platform-apathetic, this may be one site to bookmark. [Building Windows 8]
