We’re now only one day away from finding out what Microsoft really intend for Windows 8 to be. Will it have the tablet interface by default and how deep with that interface go? Will they drop legacy support completely? Will the Kinect feature brightly in Windows’ future? Well on Tuesday 13th September we’re all finally going to find out the answers to these questions as Microsoft unveil their shiny new OS during the keynote address of their BUILD conference in Anaheim, California.
This keynote address will be broadcast online, live and you can watch it on the official Microsoft Press website here. The keynote will most likely be delivered by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer who’s booming voice has become a staple of Microsoft press events.
It’s rumoured that we will see some of the first breed of new Windows 8 tablet hardware tomorrow too, including a new quad core tablet. It is traditional that Microsoft show off some new hardware to accompany a software product, and I’m expecting that we could well see a Kinect sensor built into a monitor or laptop bezel for the first time.
The keynote address will begin at 9am PT | 5pm – London | 12pm – New York | Fri 2am – Sydney | Fri 1am – Tokyo | Fri 12am – Beijing | 9:30pm – Mumbai so you know when you can watch it in your locality.
As of tomorrow when this keynote is broadcast Windows 7 will no longer be top dog and it remains to be seen A) How the mainstream press react to Windows 8 and B) how stock markets react to the unveiling. I have made my own predictions about Windows 8 (and the effect on Microsoft’s stock price here for you to read and comment on).
So will you be watching the keynote address live? What do you think Windows 8 will be and do you even like the noises coming out of Redmond?
