Microsoft just pushed out the Full-on developer preview of the much awaited windows 8 operating system during Microsoft build conference. The major attractions on this developer version include the new desktop experience, Windows 8 applications and windows 8 store. Windows 8 developer preview will be available for download this week.
According to Steven Sinofsky — president of the Windows and Windows Live Division at Microsoft said that — the company has “reimagined Windows,” bringing about a “new range of capabilities” that coders will begin to dig into sooner rather than later. As we’dseen before, the “Metro-styled” user interface is front-and-center, bringing graphical elements of Windows Phone 7 to desktop, laptop and tablet users of the future. Internet Explorer 10 is also onboard, as well as a focus on “apps” that can communicate with one another, and content that can sync across devices. Folks comfortable in a Win7 environment ought to be right at home here — Win8 is built on the same foundation, though the retooled Task Manager and Windows Explorer should tickle the average fancy.
Winrumors just added some hands on video on the new windows 8 desktop and Windows 8 application experience. We embedded the video for you.
