The Microsoft engineering team has launched a new blog to start a dialog about design choices, real-world data and usage, and new opportunities that are part of Windows 8. There'll be regular posts throughout the development of Windows 8, focussing on the engineering of the product.

The next major event for Windows is our BUILD conference in September, where we will provide developers with more details about the full spectrum of tools and capabilities available to make the most of Windows 8. The B8 blog is a chance for us to discuss the details and provide a behind the scenes look at the evolution of Windows 8.

Keep up with the new posts by following @BuildWindows8 on Twitter.
