The latest Windows 8 Reviews

We also show effortless movement between existing Windows programs and new Windows 8 apps. The full capability of Windows continue to be available to you, including the Windows Explorer and Desktop, as does compatibility with all Windows 7 logo PCs, software and peripherals.

Microsoft has earlier previewed Windows 8 build 7867, today at the Computed 2011, build 7985 was demoed. The complete build string of this build is 7985. Windows 8 is a reimagining of Windows, from the chip to the interface.  From the screenshot below it can be clearly seen that this build has entirely overhauled Ribbon interface with the ability to collapse automatically. The Immersive Browser in this build is also pretty mature as compared to the one in Windows 8 build 7955.

A Windows 8-based PC is really a new kind of device, one that scales from touch-only small screens through to large screens, with or without a keyboard and mouse.

Although the new user interface is designed and optimized for touch, it works equally well with a mouse and keyboard.  There'll be two kinds of applications for Windows 8, one that runs in a traditional desktop, and the other pseudo-mobile apps based on HTML5 and JavaScript, but both environments rather, the entire OS have been designed from the ground up for touch screen use.  Fast, fluid and dynamic, the experience has been transformed while keeping the power, flexibility and connectivity of Windows intact.

Keyboard and mouse will still be options for both sets of programs, but there are multiple virtual sets of keys for different form factors, including a split keyboard for vertical slate use. Multitasking is simply a matter of swiping running apps into the center of the screen, and you can pull windows partway to "snap" them in place alongside other windows -- even mixing and matching traditional desktop programs with web apps simultaneously.

We are excited to bring a modern new platform and tools to developers and see how their inspiration jumpstarts a new generation of apps. Windows 8 apps can use a broad set of new libraries and controls, designed for fluid interaction and seamless connectivity. Apps can add new capabilities to Windows and to other apps, connecting with one another through the new interface. For example, we showed today how a developer can extend the file picker control to enable picking from their own app content or from within another Windows 8 app, in addition to the local file system and the network.
This is sure to inspire a new generation of hardware and software development, improving the experience for PC users around the world.
