Windows 8 Preview
It's only a few weeks since June 1 when Microsoft unveiled Windows 8 at the AllThingsD conference, also known as D9. Since then, the blogosphere has been crammed-full with talk about Windows 8. At the D9, Microsoft Windows President Steven Sinofsky's showed a demo of Windows 8. Obviously, an interface that borrowed a lot from Windows 7 and the Windows phone 7. After the conference, all the talk was not about what Mr Steven Sinofsky said, but what he didn't say.
A presentation that was supposed to spark excitement among millions of Windows users and developers at the end of the day ended up making Windows developers seeking for more answers, particularly about Silverlight and .Net.
Many Windows programmers have spent their entire careers around Silverlight and .Net, so when not even a word was mentioned about these tools at the conference, anxiety builds up. For many, the world is ending. To add salt to the wound, Microsoft has refused to clarify on this point, adding more fuel to the fire. Forums for Windows application developers are bursting at their seams with millions of developers seeking a clarification.
No one knows for sure if Microsoft will gradually phase out Silverlight and .Net. Microsoft's goal is taking away whatever steam Apple has gathered with iOS, Mac OS X, and the yet to be released, Mac OS X Lion. Windows 8 will be available in 2012 and will run on desktops, tablets, and laptops.
