Weekend Read: Creating the Windows 8 user experience

| May 19, 2012 | 34 Replies

With Nokia expected to create a tablet with Windows 8 on it, it’s good to know a little bit more about what we’re getting into (perhaps without delving into getting a consumer preview version).

There’s a very interesting  (and very long) read into Windows 8, titled, “Creating the Windows 8 user experience” tweeted on my feed by @stroughtonsmith.

Amazing blog post from Microsoft about Windows 8; they talk the talk – Windows of yore is dead

http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/archive/2012/05/18/creating-the-windows-8-user-experience.aspx

At the start there’s a lot of reflection back on the previous versions of Windows – how it evolved with plenty of criticisms (with hindsight) about usability. They mention that all of that was ‘pre-iPad World’ and now expectations of a personal computer is rapidly changing. With that, they tell us about their goals for Windows 8 experience. They offer some criticism about the Windows 8 consumer preview and a forward statement again on the aims for Windows 8.

As Steven said, MS is certainly talking the talk here. Come Q3/Q4 we need Nokia and MS to walk the walk and deliver. Windows 8 tablet/pc and windows 8 phones.
