This month, all Windows Secrets subscribers can download an excerpt: Chapter 1, “Windows 8: A Quick Tour.” It starts with a concise summary of Windows 8′s new tile/touch interface and then briefly discusses the coding differences inherent in the new OS. This peek at Windows 8′s components might even interest users of the new OS who have no plans to code up a Win8 application.
