Official news on Microsoft Windows 8
On June 1, 2011; Julie Larson-Green, corporate vice president, Windows Experience first wrote about Windows 8 :
Today, at the D9 Conference, we demonstrated the next generation of Windows, internally code-named œWindows 8, for the first time. Windows 8 is a reimagining of Windows, from the chip to the interface. A Windows 8-based PC is really a new kind of device, one that scales from touch-only small screens through to large screens, with or without a keyboard and mouse.
At the Microsoft Developer Forum in Tokyo on May 23, 2011, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that the next version of Windows (Windows 8 ) will be released the following year (in 2012).
