Hi, and welcome to Windows 8 Release Preview First Look. I'm David Rivers. Microsoft is poised to launch this newest rendition of their Windows operating system later in the year and I can tell you right now it's going to take some getting used to. That's why we're going to spend some time here getting acquainted with the Release Preview of Windows 8; the code name by the way for the unfinished but publicly available operating system. We will begin with a tour of the totally redesigned user interface which is designed around touch screens.
We'll explore some navigation techniques including gestures and keyboard shortcuts, and we'll investigate the new ribbon interface of Windows Explorer. We'll also get familiar with a number of different apps beginning with store apps already installed and then moving on to the Pro apps that get us under the hood, if you will, in Windows 8. We'll finish up by learning about some of the devices and utilities of Windows 8 for getting connected and accessing the web. So with so many topics to explore let's get started.
