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 questions you have if any.

I’ll sniff around up there and see what I can find.

    maybe somewhat unrelated, but if possible, it would be nice to answer this question?
    Why do we have nowadays laptops with such a low resolution as compared to laptops from 8-10 yrs ago? I think most of professionals are sick and tired of these so called “hi resolution” laptops that have taken so much of screen real estate and downgraded laptops to the point that it is out of any reasonable thinking.

      It is somewhat unrelated.

      Thanks for your comment.

    I would like to upgrade to windows 8 but as I use cctv camera’s called wilife from logitech I am told they are not going to supply software to run my camera’s.

    I have tried a test version of windows 8 and they will not work.

    These wilife camera’s cost me £800.00.
    Can you assist me here.

    • Onuora Amobi

      You have to work with the vendor. Not a Microsoft issue.

    I would like to be able to change the start screen to one of my photos

    • CompUser

      Yes, me too. I’d like to be able to customize the start screen background just as we can do now with the desktop wallpaper.

      Also, there are several 3rd-party applications for managing dual-monitor setups, which allow using different wallpapers, screen savers, etc., on each monitor. Can Microsoft build this ability into Windows 8. Oh, yes, and one other thing. What’s happening as far as using Kinect with Windows 8?

      Thanks, Onuora, and have a great time in Seattle!

      • Onuora Amobi

        Kinect is a great question. Been off the radar for a while.

      Thanks. We’ll see.

    • Onuora Amobi

      I dont think this one will change dude.

      This one has been litigated to death already…

    Will the app store for windows phone 8 be the same as the sore for windows 8?
    Do we, as developers, have to pay subscriptions in both stores? That would be frustrating especially if you want to build free applications.
    When can we have the windows phone 8 SDK?
    Are there any incentives for developers in starting to build applications for windows 8 and phone ?

    No sound ! Why buy? Drivers don’t work!

  • gibster

    Windows 8 does not correct the problem to re-install realtek or recognize. I have searched for drivers. to no avail. I wanted a new platform that would not cost me more money. Now. it seems I’M FORCED TO BUY A NEW SOUND CARD. Not happy.

    How do I get videos and audio files that work on my website to work in Windows 8 IE10 Metro version? They work fine on the “desktop” version of W8, but not in the Metro version. I know this is a problem because many, many sites that I visit have videos that don’t work in Metro, i.e., The Wall Street Journal, The Houston Chronicle. I know HTML5 has tags for video, but I do not really understand how to get the embedded Flash player to work, nor can I find anything on the Web that explains it.
