Building Windows 8

The team working on Windows 8, the next operating system for Windows desktops, laptops and slates, have launched a new blog dedicated to the Building of Windows 8 which is an inside look from the Windows engineering team.

In the first post, Steven Sinofsky, Windows President, states:

“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.

“Today we want to begin an open dialog with those of you who will be trying out the pre-release version over the coming months. We intend to post regularly throughout the development of Windows 8, and to focus on the engineering of the product. Welcome to “Building Windows 8,” or as we call it, “B8.””

The new blog is a must read for anyone interested in the development of an OS
