    Windows 8, There’s a Lot More to Come



    The first demonstration of Windows 8 is bound to have been a bittersweet moment for many.

    Those that remember the first sneak peek at Windows 7, undoubtedly also recall a similar feeling. Back in May 2008, Microsoft demoed the new multi-touch capabilities of Windows 7, giving a taste of the platform’s Natural User Interface (NUI) evolution.

    The Windows 7 front remained quiet until later that year, when Steven Sinofsky, president, Microsoft Windows and Windows Live Division started sharing additional details of the upcoming operating system.

    In case you weren’t paying attention, something similar happened at CES 2011, with the announcement of support for System on a Chip (SoC) architectures with the next version of Windows.

    The most promising line of the whole article was the last few sentences
    The announcement [on January 5th] is just the start of our dialog with a broad community around Windows and, as with Windows 7, we will be engaging in the broadest pre-release program of any operating system. So there is a lot more to come
    Meaning that they will continue and probably build on the feedback program in place for pre-release versions of Windows 7. I think that there will be more official releases than Windows 7 saw.

    Love all of the attention and speculation revolving around vNext!!
