On June 1st, during All Things Digital D9 conference, Steven Sinofsky showed a first look at the next version of Windows, code-named “Windows 8”. According to Sinofsky this is big, in fact he calls it one of “biggest change since at least Windows 95”.
I’m pretty excited (ok, that’s an understatement) about what has been shown. My suggestion is to go discover what has been unveiled until now and prepare yourself for more later. Below you can find a number of videos and links with more information.
