Has “Building Windows 8” gone quiet?

Hmm… Interesting! I’m looking at the Building Windows 8  (BW8) blog right now and doing some rough-n-ready frequency analysis. It’s been 15 days since the last post to the blog (“Touch Hardware and Windows 8“), but in the 10 prior posts before that no gap between postings is more than 8 days, with 2 on the same day one time (February 29, release day for the Customer Preview), and 1 each gaps of 1, 2, 4 and 6 days, with three each gaps of 7 and 8 days. That puts the average gap between posts around 5.3 days (let’s say 6 in round numbers), with something of a skew to higher posting frequencies than that. 15 days is quite a gap indeed after that kind of record, almost triple the average…

Is this the end of BW8 posting?

Is this the end for BW8 posting?

I certainly hope it isn’t the end but perhaps just a hiatus. I’ve grown fond of the regular information made available through this communication channel, and I have to believe there will still a lot of things to report about Windows 8, as more features and functions get locked down for the upcoming OEM release in July, and more and more Metro style applications begin to make their appearances.

Cross your fingers and hope for the best! It will be sad if MS decides to stop the regular updates and information that BW8 supplied so regularly, and so well…
