Windows 8's new way of working: Messaging, Mail, and People
Windows 8 is a very different Windows. We've already seen that it will require Windows users to learn new ways of interacting with their computers, but there's more to it than that. The way applications work and interact with each other on the new platform is new and different—and rather good.
The Windows 8 Consumer Preview comes with a handful of apps pre-installed, with a few dozen more available to download via the Windows Store. Microsoft has warned that these apps are mere previews, saying in Barcelona "Now is not a good time to start reviewing the apps, or listing them, or categorizing them." so we're not going to review them. But taking a closer look to understand how they work and fit together will reveal a lot about the way Windows 8 will work.
The preinstalled People, Messaging, and Mail apps in particular demonstrate the new Windows 8 way of using (and, for developers, building) apps.
