Video interview: Why develop for Windows 8?

In this interview, Anand Krishnan,  director, developer & platform group, Microsoft UK speaks about Windows 8 development.

He says: "We're making a big shift to becoming a devices and services company." He believes Microsoft is on the edge of a revolution to redefine the idea of a device.

"It used to stand for phones and tablets. But we are walking into a world where a device is just a computer."

As Computer Weekly has previously reported, Windows 8 represents a departure from how applications are currently developed. "To truly take advantage of the new UI, you will need to redevelop applications," he adds.
