Windows 8 will bring a dramatic change to both the developer and the end user. Our first look at the beta has got us really excited – especially about mobile application development!
Windows 8 introduces a new Metro style interface which is a personalized layout with clean typography and animations to make interacting with your PC fluid and intuitive. The interface is optimized for touch and easier navigation.
There is a new Start screen which will provide a faster way to interact with apps and content. Windows 8 will also have two touch keyboards – a full-size keyboad with larger buttons and a specially designed thumb keyboard.
If you’re a developer, you can download a beta version from Microsoft.
