Next week Microsoft will unveil the remaining details behind its upcoming Windows 8 platform. We have already seen a look at what the tablet interface will look like, but the desktop environment still has many secrets to be announced.

Over the past year, we have learned a lot about Windows 8, from official sources as well as builds that have leaked out. Despite the leaks, Microsoft has effectively kept most of the features under cover for now. While new code names and peeks at the Metro look and feel have been spotted, this is all trivial to the bigger changes Microsoft may have in store for its consumers.

With a tag line on the official BUILD website of “In 1995, Windows changed the PC. BUILD will show you that Windows 8 changes everything”, you know they have something big up their sleeve.
