Microsoft Launches 'Building Windows 8' Blog

Postby augie » Tue Aug 16, 2011 1:11 pm

With Microsoft's Build Developer Conference rapidly approaching, Microsoft today launched the official Windows 8 blog to give insight to the Windows dev team. Microsoft also stated that a pre-release version of Windows 8 will arrive in the coming months.

"We've been hard at work designing and building Windows 8, and 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," Steven Sinofsky stated in the first Building Windows 8 blog post.

Microsoft plans on using this new blog to discuss the Windows 8 product development as it progresses. "Our intent with this pre-release blog is to make sure that we have a reasonable degree of confidence in what we talk about.. this blog is here to provide a two-way dialog about the complexities and tradeoffs of product development," Sinofsky stated.
