Not at all, it seems. In fact, the guy had some choice words for the RT platform not so long ago. Then again, coding for new platforms is never easy, even if it has Windows in its name. You may recall many developers voicing their concerns when Sony released the PlayStation 3. It was an entirely new architecture back...

New post from our sister site – Windows8enterprise.com. It talks a little bit about how to strategically determine the total cost of ownership for Microsoft’s newest Operating System – Windows 8.

When it comes to Windows 8 apps, there is really only one way to get the job done, a PC and some development tools. At least that was the only way, but things change and Microsoft has now released a second solution. The new method is the use of a browser-based TouchDevelop app. This web app is an offshoot of the...

Okay, Windows 8 and RT don’t have nearly as many apps as their rivals. Putting that aside, having close to 8000 apps from day one is still pretty dang impressive.

Very cool news. I had posted earlier that Windows 8 was available to MSDN and Technet subscribers. Well if you don’t have one of those memberships but want to take the software for a ride, you’re in luck! Microsoft have released a Trial version of Windows 8. It’s a fully functioning version of Windows 8 Enterprise and...

Interesting new nuggets of information from a Windows 8 Technology enthusiast Darren W Baker. Mr Baker had a chance to install Windows 8 Enterprise unto his Samsung Series 7 slate yesterday and was kind enough to document the process on his blog. Two things jump out at you. First, it seems that at some point within...

You’re looking at what is allegedly the first screenshot of the RTM’ed Windows Store. Seems to be the same as the Windows 8 Release Preview to me with maybe just a few sharpened graphics. More to come…. Source
