Windows 8 Development
It is estimated that over 90% of PC users across the world are using some form or other of Windows operating system, and their latest version Windows 8 is rumored to be generally available in late October 2012. It is currently available in “Release Preview” and if you haven’t already sampled the “Metro Style” tiles of Windows 8, why not download it and have a look for yourself.

At Waymark IT we recognise that the imminent plethora of Microsoft’s advertising campaigns to promote the virtues of Windows 8 will create a lot of opportunities and hence we have already started developing in this platform.
There is also significant interest in the recently announced Microsoft Surface, the Surface aims to be the next generation of tablet devices.
- From touch to type, office to living room, from your screen to the big screen, you can see more, share more, and do more with Surface.
- Create, collaborate, and get stuff done with Office.
- Explore your world with fast, fluid Windows 8 apps.
