So it’s that time again. Just like I did last year, I’m asking for your questions. What would you like to know about Windows 8 from the BUILD conference this year? Don’t say Windows Phone 8 (kidding). Seriously, use the comments below and let me know what topics you would care the most about and what...

So on October 12th, I was at the Rio hotel in Lovely Las Vegas as a round table speaker for the SMB Nation 2012 Fall Conference. This was a really well organized and fun event and it was a pleasure to be invited (Thanks Harry!) The plan was that I, Tony Bradley (from PC World) and a couple of others would do...

So I’ll be “working really hard” in Las Vegas next month when I attend the SMB Nation 2012 conference. I was at last years SMB conference in Redmond and it was quite a blast. I got the chance to meet quite a few talented and important people in the industry. I’ll be on a guest panel discussing Windows 8. This...

Well, remember I did that MVPNation conference in Redmond a few months ago? Well the organizers have been gracious enough to share the video and I wanted to pass it to you guys. We talked about Windows 8 and it was quite a discussion. It was only a few months ago but already so much has changed since we had...

I just got back from a fantastic conference in Seattle and I had an opportunity to finally collect my thoughts about Windows 8. I’m a pretty heavy Twitter user so I’ve had a chance to read a lot of bloggers weighing in about the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. I didn’t feel I was ready to weigh in on this topic...

So I’m back home in California after briefly visiting CES 2012 to cover the Steve Ballmer keynote speech. Here was my take from my brief time at the conference. I thought that the conference venue was warm and cramped and over crowded. The Venetian is a nice hotel in Vegas but compared to the BUILD conference,...

So, what a morning. First of all, I have to give a big shout out to Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott for having the sense to skip this event. So far, it has been a big yawn fest that doesn’t seem as well organized and up scale as the BUILD conference in September. Important caveat – I am not here for Audio...

So, some interesting news. I’ll be in Seattle in March as a guest speaker at MVP Nation. MVP Nation is a conference that offers participants the rare opportunity to learn directly from Microsoft MVPs in a deeply technical environment. MVP Nation I’ll be hosting the Windows 8 Expert Panel: Hosted by Onuora Amobi...

I’ll be in Vegas in January to (hopefully) cover the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2012. The International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is one of the most profitable and successful technology trade shows in the world. It reaches across global markets, connects the industry and enables CE innovations to...

So, in this third part of my Road To Windows 8 series, I want to talk a little bit about the Windows 8 Metro interface. In the first part I talked about the BUILD conference. In the second part, I talk about what I believe to be the overall vision for Microsoft’s Windows 8. Now, let’s talk Metro style. For...
