Microsoft lets loose a few more Windows 8 tidbits

Microsoft lets loose a few more Windows 8 tidbitsA couple of interesting posts have gone up on Microsoft's Building Windows 8 blog in the past few days. The first talks about USB3. Windows 8 will include native USB3 support—no great surprise there—but the post goes into some of the issues faced ensuring compatibility with the enormous range of USB 1, 2, and 3 devices that are on the market.

The second takes a look at Explorer's file copying functionality. Windows 8 streamlines the dialog boxes to make them easier to manage, more informative, and less intrusive.

So far, the videos aren't giving much away. The second shows a new ribbon-based Explorer and gives something of a feel for what Windows 8's traditional desktop will look like, but it looks like, for the moment at least, the Windows 8 immersive touch interface is being kept under wraps.
