According to the sources Microsoft’s Windows
8 second Milestone build has been finalized, with Milestone 3 the next
to be worked on. After that stage it’s only a matter of time before we
see a beta of Windows 8 in testing.
Microsoft compiled 6.2.7947.0.winmain_win8m2_escrow.110218-1608 on Friday after pushing out a number of Windows
8 builds recently. Things are moving along nicely behind closed doors,
and versions of the OS will soon be allowed out to Microsoft’s trusted
partners for testing. Some of the recent Windows 8 builds which were compiled in the last couple of weeks were:
With Microsoft working on an ARM-compatible version of Windows,
it is possible that this could be the version first to testing, with
the full desktop experience coming later. With recent leaks pointing
toward a version of Windows
8 being ready for future tablets in early 2012, it’s clear that there
is no time to waste for the Redmond outfit, especially if they hope to
take on Apple and Google in the rapidly expanding tablet market.
Little is really known about Windows
8, though a more cloud-centric OS is expected especially considering
the focus on tablets and other machines with no conventional disk
drive. Microsoft is keeping its cards close to its chest thus far,
though it’s clear the company sees Windows
8 as a pivotal software release, heaping more pressure on an already
creaking development team. Still stung from the Vista debacle, MS will
be hoping Windows 8 can build on the good faith the 7th installment of the OS managed to return.
Lets see, whats there for us this time.
