Windows 8 was unveiled by Microsoft on 29 February 2012 with Windows 8 Developer Preview. It got bug fixes and more till it upgraded to Consumer Preview, then to Release Preview and the finally to RTM which is the retail version

Modern UI was in use on the Windows Phone 7 with the name Metro UI. Many tech geeks love the UI a lot as it is so simple to use  and mainly focused on Touch Based Devices. It was then brought to Windows 8 to start a new generation of Ultrabooks and Tablets.

AOL was released long ago as a website. Today we have noticed that the UI of AOL’s site in 1996 was the Modern User Interface. This was a shocking news for me. This means Windows Modern UI was in use from 1996 and if it was used in 1996 then it would have been released even earlier.

See the compare of the “Kids Only” AOL in 1996 and Windows 8 Start Screen in 2012

So we have the History back. Modern UI will be the main Interface till Microsoft Develops a new UI which I think would take more than a decade or even two ad people do not accept changes easily and Microsoft wants customers so they have to listen to the demand.

So Are you happy that History is back or you are sad that Microsoft uses the old AOL UI in Windows 8 by making some changes like graphics and more.

In Windows 8, Windows Store is a marketplace to download Modern UI apps. In Windows Store there are many categories like Games, Social ,Entertainment, Photo, Books and Reference, News and Weather, Health and Fitness, Food and Dining, Lifestyle, Shopping, Travel, Productivity, Business, Education and Government. Windows 8 modern apps  have no compromise experience too.

If you want to build a modern app for Windows 8 just head to the dev.windows.com get your documentations  and downloads to start it , for approving a app to the Windows Store you will need to pay a developer fee priced at 25 $ to publish your app in the Store.

Windows 8 has a very nice opportunity for developers across the world. Windows is re-imagined from chipset to the core. When they first give a glimpse of Windows 8 at Build 2011 it was too loving and then at Build 2012 when Windows 8 releases then they will tell us about more about Windows 8 and its app.

Many apps like Cut The Rope, Fruit Ninja, Wikipedia, Fresh Paint, Flip Toast, Armed ! and Box are doing really good progress in downloading at Windows Store. Let’s wait and watch how Microsoft teases it store when Windows 8 releases. Till now I am more excited about it, I hope you would be also.

As  last week Microsoft tell us that they had complete their work on Windows 8 and now it has been RTM’ed . After that everybody knows that leaks coming started on file – sharing sites . As you we  have shown you screenshots of Windows 8 RTM in our earlier post. Here is the pic that Tom Warren posted in The Verge.
As you know there will be two editions in the market when Windows 8 releases on 26 Oct 12 . One is Core and another is Pro. In this pic u will see that Microsoft has chosen to display its Windows 8 UI logo (earlier known as Metro UI) on the center which looks very nice and metrolistic too. There will be also a 39.99 $ upgrade on genuine Windows Xp , Vista and 7  also . Let’s see the new Windows 8 PC’s that will be launching when Windows 8 releases. This is the best design ever.

Today we will be talking about the major operating system new upcoming which is Windows 8. According to the Windows 8 Build 2012 site, Microsoft’s Engineers are showcasing there new products which are Windows Phone 8, Windows Azure, Xbox (No new Xbox is coming but just an update to it’s software.), Office 365, Bing, Visual Studio 2012 and Internet Explorer.

Windows 8 is expected to handle the main role in the Build 2012 site. It mainly mentions the topic on “How to design and build beautiful Windows 8 apps. How to sell your apps in the Windows 8 Store and make money.”

In the Windows 8 App Store, there are mainly about 450 Apps (meaning those apps formerly called Metro-Style apps, which write to the WinRT API) and most of them are just the basic apps.

Main official from Microsoft stated that a new developer conference is there to be held in 2012 which will be a big show for Microsoft. Sometime ago, officials said that the next upcoming build of Windows 8 would be held on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Wash., from October 30 to November 2.

This event will happen 4 days after the Windows 8 release which is 30 October . I also want to go to Redmond, WA ,USA , but I could not go because I am just 14 year old. If you want to register for it just add your name to waiting list. For more information go to the build site now. www.buildwindows.com

Today we will be talking about Final Builds of every Windows Operating System Launched yet. Microsoft which is a Redmond based company makes one of the best Operating Systems for Computer and Smart Phones.

When I compared the Build Number and Windows Vista, 7 and 8, we found a pattern which also hints about which build number would be used for the next Windows Operating System after Windows 8

Here is how the pattern follows :-

375 X 16 = 6000 (Windows Vista Build)
475 X 16 = 7600 (Windows 7 Build)
575 X 16 = 9200 (Windows 8 Build)
This means that the final build of the next windows will be
675 X 16 = 10800 (Maybe Windows 9)

So means that there is a difference of 100 between these numbers. We just got the information that the Final Windows 8 build leaked is 9200 means that Microsoft is really following this pattern.

This information first came up on Fresh News Area so please add a backlink if you copy it.

Microsoft is a company which changes its logo whenever a new version of windows is launched. Microsoft has confirmed a new logo for Windows 8. This logo looks cool and is made of my favorite colour that is blue. This logo was confirmed in Windows Team Blog. This logo is fully made of Blue colour. It also reflects the metro interface of Windows 8.

See what Microsoft said about their logo :-

[box]We have said that Windows 8 is a complete re imagination of the Windows operating system. Nothing has been left unexplored, including the Windows logo, to evaluate how it held up to modern PC sensibilities. The Windows logo is a strong and widely recognized mark but when we stepped back and analyzed it, we realized an evolution of our logo would better reflect our Metro style design principles and we also felt there was an opportunity to reconnect with some of the powerful characteristics of previous incarnations.[/box]

See how the logo looks

Now Compare it with older versions of Windows

If you see it carefully you will observe that most of the logos are flags. Microsoft has confirmed that this is a Window. This logo looks both modern and cool and which is made fully of blue colour which symbolizes advancement
