What You Can Expect From Windows 8

snydeq writes "Early insights into Microsoft's upcoming Windows preview should give IT a lot to chew on when the bits arrive, Woody Leonhard writes in an in-depth look at what to expect from next week's Windows 8 Consumer Preview. 'Over the past year we've gone through layers and layers of rumors, particularly about Windows 8 on ARM. Features come and go. Perhaps the most egregious example is in a video made at the Build conference last September. It shows Roger Gulrajani, from the Windows Hardware Ecosystem group, demonstrating Flash running in IE10, on the desktop, on an ARM device. Now, we're assured IE10 won't run Flash on ARM devices. That much has changed in just four months. Or maybe Microsoft itself was confused and got it wrong; there were several such misstatements at Build, and you can expect confusion to continue given the addition of ARM support for just part of the complete Windows 8 experience.'"
