Microsoft Launches Windows 8 Blog

Microsoft introduced Windows 8 Blog, promises to release Tech details. A Twitter account is also on air to keep partners and customers better updated with the development and progress of its next operating system.

Windows President Steven Sinofsky made the first post on the “Building Windows 8” blog today, sharing some new information about Windows 8 and outlining the purpose of these new outlets to end-users, developers and information professionals.

Microsoft's "Building Windows 8" blog didn't reveal any new details of the operating system, but it did emphasize Microsoft's willingness to publicly work with its customer base and developers before the OS ships.

"We've certainly learned lessons over the years about the perils of talking about features before we have a solid understanding of our ability to execute," Sinofsky wrote. "Our intent with this pre-release blog is to make sure that we have a reasonable degree of confidence in what we talk about, before we talk about it."

Windows 8 builds have been leaked online for a few months now. Windows 8 build 7850, the first leaked Windows 8 build, hit the Internet in April 2011. It was quickly followed by Windows 8 build 7955 a few weeks later. Windows Server 8 build 7959 then leaked in May 2011.

The next major event for Windows is the BUILD conference in September where more information will be provided to develpers.

As Windows 8’s reported 2012 release date approaches, the company will doubtlessly pour hundreds of millions of dollars into its marketing efforts. This new blog is just the beginning.
