Microsoft Reveals Windows 8
At its annual developer conference in California, Microsoft gives developers an early look at its new operating system.
Posted: Thursday 15th September 2011
According to the company, Windows 8 has been redesigned "from the chipset to the experience" and now boots up in a much shorter time than its predecessor, Windows 7.
Windows unit chief Steven Sinofsky said: “We took everything that was really great about Windows 7 and we made it even better in Windows 8."
Microsoft say that the operating system will focus on applications, containing an app store for the first time and featuring a home page with colourful tiles that take the user directly into applications like Facebook.
The company has not set a schedule for the release but analysts say they are likely to aim for the back-to-school season in July next year or the following Christmas at the latest.
