[Anandtech.com] Microsoft BUILD: Windows 8, A Pre-Beta Preview
We’re here in Anaheim, California at Microsoft’s BUILD conference. As has become tradition Microsoft has been holding major developer conferences for their new OSes roughly a year ahead of launch. In 2008 developers and the press got their first in-depth look at Windows 7 at Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference (PDC), and here in 2011 BUILD is doing much the same for Windows 8.
Today the show kicks off in earnest with a keynote that begins at the same time as this article went live, however yesterday was the first press session, with Microsoft spending most of the day running the press through a series of presentations focused on the end-user. We also had a chance to spend some time using an x86 tablet running Windows 8, with the tablet being the focal point of Microsoft’s new Metro interface. But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, let’s start at the beginning. There’s a great deal to discuss about Windows 8, and Metro is the centerpiece.
