Windows 8 on a development rig shown of at D6 + a look at some new windows 8 laptops


Three years after unveiling Windows 7 at D6, Microsoft Windows President Steven Sinofsky is back to show off a new version of Windows that’s responsive to the growing popularity of tablet PCs and the advent of the cloud.

Windows 8 has two User Interfaces, one for Tablet and Windows Phone and a more traditional mouse and keyboard type user interface for one you’re working on a PC, although the tablet interface could still be used on the pc if preferred (keyboard and mouse for me).

The video a starts of making it look like there is only one interface, but first part of the video looks at the Tablet/Phone user interface, and the second part of the video looks at the PC user interface, and some nice looking windows 8 laptops.

NOTE: The box on the table is NOT A SLATE PC OR A TABLET, it’s a development rig. Basically this is just an off the shelf second generation core PC used for development testing.
