Microsoft is streaming BUILD keynotes, 9 am PDT

If you couldn’t make it out to the BUILD conference this year, Microsoft is fortunately streaming the key events. To view the live streams, head on over to Microsoft’s BUILD website where the broadcasts will be shown on September 13 and 14 at 9 AM PDT.

This will be the week that Microsoft shows off what they have been working on for Windows 8. While we have already seen the tablet interface, Microsoft has a lot more to show off for its desktop and server applications.

Windows 8 is the next generation platform for Microsoft and they are betting big. With a new design language called Metro, it will be a new look for the popular Windows platform. What else Microsoft will be binging to the table is still unknown, but that will all change in just a few short days

With a lot of excitement around this new platform, what are you looking forward to the most? Do you want to see how Metro will work on the desktop, itching to get a look at some new Windows 8 tablets or is Windows 8 server your kind of thing? There is a lot to be excited about, all of which will be shown off this week.

Neowin is at the BUILD conference and will be covering all aspects of the new features being announced by Microsoft.

So... Where on the //build/ website is the stream going to be? I can't seem to find anything. Maybe I'm missing something obvious.

The Live Webcast link on that page just redirects you to the buildwindows.com website, so I assume the webcasts will appear on there before they kick off the keynotes later.

They'll change up the links closer to the stream time, (they usually stream both on presspass and the event site) but as a general rule, you can find the correct link / stream to any big live Microsoft event on the presspass site.

Excited for this!!! But in my opinion I think google is the best when it comes to organizing events. Remember during the I/O 2011 the official site had a pretty cool countdown?

It'll arrive... in October, 2012. Approximately 60 days before the end of the world... which Nostradamus predicted as the third coming of the Blue Screen of Death.

best thing to do is always have 2 drives. 1 for your personal stuff 1 for the OS. When you install a new windows OS you can use settings and transfer wizard to make one of those backups (to the personal drive) of your windows profile (appdata) and restore it on the new OS install. makes reinstalling things very quick.

Or, scrap that all together and just throw the second drive in to replace the first drive so you have a hard drive that isn't touched and you can have a smooth experience as you won't need for Windows to sort out all your files. Also, it's pre-beta so there is a chance that the file transfer wizard might be incomplete. And to be honest, if I was going to try this, I would try it on a spare drive and keep my main OS intact.

Should be 5PM for you, it's 6PM for central europe.

It is 5PM Greenwich time.

PDT is GMT - 7. So 9am PDT is is actually 16:00 GMT. GMT is always in 24 hours format and does not change when day light saving time kicks in .

Also remember for those in the UK, that it's 5pm our time. We're not currently on GMT, we're on BST which is an hour ahead of GMT. For those still on GMT (ie. in the same time zone, but not in the UK), it's 4pm as AtriusNY said.

Anyway, lucky I finish work at 4:30pm tomorrow, so should just about be able to get home for the start of this at 5pm... can't wait :-)

Thanks Sucks for me though, I get out of work at 4:30 PM and have another hour to get home, so either stay at work and watch it there or miss half an hour of the keynote and watch it at home

@Brad Sams,
The summary on the front page (neowin that is) says the 12th and 13th instead of 13th and 14th

That threw me off too!

Fixed, I was a little excited, wish it was today though!

Don't worry, it is completely understandable.

Just as expected, they've been streaming everything this year.

Yes, bye-bye Neowin Event Coverage!

. I don't think so... Neowin summarizes everything, and one does not need to hear every blabber they have to say.
