Microsoft Releases Windows 8

The new client OS is fundamentally changing how developers build applications for users

Windows 8 is arguably the most significant release that Microsoft has ever offered for developers. The introduction of Windows 8 fundamentally changes the way developers must build applications for their clients and organizations. The new OS's introduction of live tiles, carousels, and launchpads will transform traditional software development approaches. Windows 8 now gives developers the ability to think creatively about how they program software and present information to users.
