BUILD Conference and Windows 8 Preview!

After a long time waiting for the BUILD conference, It is so far. Today September 13th is the BUILD event starting day with a GREAT keynote and with the first preview of the next Windows version "Windows 8". Steve Sinofsky have announced many gadgets of the new OS on both software and hardware levels. The powerfull hardware and exciting software combination, makes "Windows 8" a faster OS that Microsoft have build ever right now. With 4 amazing demo's, we saw:
- The new windows experience
- Some Metro style-apps
- Hardwre platform
- Cloud Services

There are many many futures built in "Windows 8" that we will see and experiment soon after downloading the bits later today or after receiving the "Slates" as BUILD conference attendees. Congratulations everyone :-) in Anaheim.

The BUILD conference this week is focused on developers and hardware partners.
For the keynote and more than 100 sessions, check out the available streams on http://buildwindows.com.

You probably want to try out the preview release—and you can. Starting later tonight you can download the Windows 8 Developer Preview. This includes a 64-bit (x64) build with development tools to build apps, and a 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) build without development tools. The releases also include a suite of sample applications (please note these are merely illustrations of potential apps, not apps that we intend to ship with Windows 8). The ISOs are linked to from http://dev.windows.com.

There is a lot of new stuff that will be announced during this BUILD Conference. Stay tunned and have a great time at BUILD conference in Anaheim or virtual via the web.

Enjoy the BUILD.
