Follow @msft777jf Folks, the leaking has resumed once again ; if you thought users would be content with a 5-minute demo video that Microsoft released, you are quite wrong.People are going crazy, so no surprise that latest Build has hit the download shelves.- Build 7989 is rumored to contain many new features for Redmond’s latest operating system, which is still unfortunately in the works. The Windows 8 tablet, besides supporting mouse clicks, will support touch input. Redmond is rumored to have changed “look and feel” of the previous grey-tainted small mobile keyboard.
The improved version will feature a cleaner design, more beautiful interface, and emoticons for instant messages!!!Yeah, you got your wish IM-lovers.
In addition, the InstantMessaging will get an automatic time zone which should be a welcomed feature in case you or your pals want to know if it is to early or late chat. Although not shown here, the keyboard has a green( actual color) interface and seems to be headed into the Split Keyboard Microsoft demoed earlier.
But..there are some problems..namely the fact that developers are unsure of their previous Silverlight and Visual Basic skills will work on Windows 8.I guess Microsoft will have to clarify that point.
Bottom line: The keyboard looks clean- it will serve for both tough and mouse-input; the emoticons are nice little treat that were nit necessary- still a nice benevolent gesture on Microsoft’s part.
