Earlier today, we shared a preview of the new user interface in Windows 8. There was also Windows activity happening halfway across the world in Taipei, Taiwan, at a big hardware show called Computex. There, Mike Angiulo, Corporate Vice President of Windows Planning, Hardware, and PC Ecosystem, met with hardware partners to show off Windows 8 and highlight how they can build devices that take advantage of the new user experience.
He showcased how Windows 8 will run on both x86 and ARM-based architectures on a variety of different prototypes including touch-centric hardware. If you recall, in January we announced that we would be working with chip makers such as AMD, Intel, NVIDIA, Qualcomm, and Texas Instruments to support the next version of Windows. I can’t wait to see the array of incredible devices that our hardware partners will build for Windows 8.
You can read the press release on today’s activities at Computex here. And stay tuned to the Windows Virtual Presskit on Microsoft News Center!
No stylus demonstrated? If you guys throw out ink support you'll just be joining the masses. Supporting both touch and ink is the way to differentiate. I could understand that making it an optional accessory might confuse consumers, but really, ink support right now is why I'm still using Windows. I really hope that the stylus isn't thrown out.
I second the hope that digitial pen support is not a "feature" but a priority
To those worried about stylus/pen use in the OS (which was one of my concerns too) I'd like to forward your attention to the AllThingsD video available online at the conferences website- find the video and go to 7 minutes 20 seconds (specifically between 7:23 and 7:24) Julie mentions the different keyboard modes and that one is "The PEN keyboard".
Microsoft wouldn't abandon styluses at this point.. and I'm happy to see that haven't- but really they should put a better show together for this thing rather than trickling out details, then perhaps a news outlet besides the tech ones would pay attention.
ohh finally! amazing!

Could we have an embeddable Silverlight video player, please?
Why can't Win 8 run Windows Phone apps as gadgets?
I am intrigued about Windows 8.
I have some doubts, is it possible to use the old Start Menu? Like if i am on a desktop and want to search an indexed file or program, or just use the old program menu, can i? I am thinking of the millions of conservative people who want to stick to the classic windows.
Will Silverlight & .NET be a platform development option for apps on windows 8? I truly hope so, because is so much easier, i mean so much easier to write apps and faster too.
Hope the Windows division doesn't want to kill the .NET plataform, because .NET is the most advanced dev platform and of course it also Microsoft. Understand what it means being also Microsoft? Stop the internal division wars...
First of all congratulations on the new visual approach of Windows, it's looking great!
I was really hoping that you guys would have implemented Kinect on the new version, as I believe that it will allow millions of people with handicap to use computers in an easier way, and therefore interact with the world more freely.
Here I leave my wishes that you guys will still reconsider and implement Kinect Controls on the new version. Could even be called Windows Kinect! :)
Just imagine phones and all other kinds of devices using the awesome Kinect for interaction and control.
Another thing would be to get the Sixth-Sense Technology in there as well, but, I think You would have to make a deal with the developer for that! :)
Very excited that Microsoft has surrounded themselves with very capable hardware partners- for collabarative effort to work, Microsoft's partners need to be able to churn great hardware and leave the OS to Microsoft. Acer has shown how great they are.. and now along with sevearl other parnters, Microsoft has the assurance that Windows 8 will run on sleek devices.
You made a number of fine points there. I did a search on the subject and found mainly people will have the same opinion with your blog. Nice effort.

Microsoft is the one that's innovating right now, not Apple. The game has turned around. Metro UX, Kinect, Surface. I'm truly amazed. Way to go Microsoft! I'm a fan for life! :)
