Microsoft publicly unveiled Windows 8 today in New York City.We got a chance to attend the keynote and were surprised to find that Microsoft is well positioned for the future.
With a slew of various tablets, laptops that convert into tablets, desktop PCs, Ultrabooks and more.
There are dozens and dozens of different types of computing devices running Windows 8 – even a desktop that doesn’t have to be plugged in.
We were particularly amazed at how Windows 8 multitasks. You can adjust the desktop to play a movie and browse the Internet at the same time, seamlessly.
At the keynote, Windows boss Steven Sinofsky gave attendees an overview of Windows 8. Execs Mike Angiulo and Julie Larson-Green gave a hands on demo of the software and hardware. The software seems easy and intuitive, making us all the more excited about testing out the OS ourselves.
The keynote was closed out by CEO Steve Ballmer, who was extremely excited about the launch calling it just the beginning for the software giant.
