Microsoft opens up Windows 8 blog

If you have been reading our site for any amount of time, you know that one slice of our bread and butter is MIDs and UMPCs, preferably running Microsoft's Windows operating system. However, as of late, we haven't been able to bring you much of that, because they've simply vanished. However, our beloved MIDs and UMPCs may be making a comeback with Windows 8

But that's been a pretty big "maybe" until today, when Microsoft announced that a new, dedicated Windows 8 blog would be opened up to provide consumers and developers and whoever else is interested with information about the next iteration of Windows. Steven Sinofsky, a Windows President, wrote this on the blog's first entry:

"We've heard people express frustration over how little we've communicated so far about Windows 8. We've certainly learned lessons over the years about the perils of talking about features before we have a solid understanding of our ability to execute." 

In normal speech, that means Microsoft wants to communicate with their customers better about what they can expect when they open the retail package.
