Steven Sinofsky, President of Windows and Windows Live Division, has been writing about features coming to Windows 8 in his Building Windows 8 blog.

He explains, “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.”

The blog is “a two-way conversation about building Windows 8”.

Key posts this past week explain some of the new features users will notice, such as:

Features of interest to ISVs include:

As for the developer experience he writes in the yesterday’s post Reflecting on our first conversations (part 1), “One additional topic folks want to talk more about that we will cover at BUILD is the overall programming model.
