Quotes

...in the October timeframe (there's always confusion about when it will be done versus when it will be available )," Miller said via e-mail. "it'll likely be done in august or september, but not really in the wild until october, in time for the holiday."
...thinking of Windows as more of a service than using a traditional updating mechanism," said Wes Miller, an analyst with Directions on Microsoft. "that's what they'd like us to get to, thinking of windows as a service."
"It's amazing that developers build (Windows Store) apps given there's only a small customer base," Miller says. "if you are thinking about building an app, especially if you are a start-up, then ios and android is where the volume is - and then the labor you have put in to building the app is not transferable to building a windows store app."
While working on Longhorn, Microsoft was looking at running Windows from a WIM file. "we would read from the wim file as if it was a file system" Miller said. That's pretty much what Microsoft is now doing
