Windows 8 – Windows 8 – Windows 8
Welcome to Episode 44 of the Observed Tech PODCAST and this one is all (almost) about Windows 8. Of course the episode number – 44 – results in the number 8 if you add them together. That of course was not planned at all – just worked out that way and for some reason I find it interesting. I begin the show talking about my experience last week at the Microsoft MVP Summit 2012 in Redmond, WA on the Microsoft Campus and what it was like to meet and network with so many great people at the event. Then the episode shifts to the main subject Windows 8. We discuss several resources that are available to help introduce you to the Windows 8 Consumer Preview that was released to the world last week. The resources range from fellow bloggers like myself, to the Microsoft team themselves who are working on Windows 8, to journalist across a broad range of sites. The goal of course to bring you the best introduction and exposure to Windows 8.
We wrap up with a look at the past week on WindowsObserver.com and highlight all of our Windows 8 coverage so far.
