Today marks the second month of WindowsWave’s existence, and we have yet to answer a few questions: What are our goals? Why are we here? What exactly do we cover?
WindowsWave was born when we realized that Microsoft is taking Windows is a new direction with Windows 8 and the Surface. Microsoft is slowly moving away from their utilitarian approach to its operating systems, and is adopting an image that is more “trendy” and more user-friendly. Whether this is the right direction for the multiple-decade old software is up for debate, but Microsoft is undoubtedly approaching both their products and how they market them in a new way.
WindowsWave strives to cover all things that involve Windows 8, Microsoft Surface, and Windows Phone 8. That leaves very little that we specifically do not cover, but please don’t be upset if we miss a story about an Xbox software update, for example. While we may cover other Microsoft software and services on occasion, it will most likely be because we feel that it is a story that is actually fairly newsworthy.
We aim to provide excellence and timeliness in Microsoft reporting. While we do try to focus on a select few aspects of Microsoft, that niche allows us to create the best content, and keeps us from drowning in news that doesn’t pertain to what we call the “new” Microsoft.

One of our ambitions is to be more than just a re-blog, re-word of news you can find elsewhere. We don’t particularly enjoy re-writing other news, but we do it to make sure we always have content online. We do it to remain relevant, and we hope to always be providing a unique perspective into the world of Windows.
WindowsWave has lived through one month, and we hope to keep providing Editorials, How-Tos, In-depth Tutorials, Quick Tips, and most importantly excellent news coverage for months and years to come. As we as a site expand, we hope you will join us and keep reading the breadth of content we hope to provide.
Recently, Thuc Nguyen and Jacob Penderworth have come on board to offer guest content and contribute to this adventurous endeavor we call WindowsWave. If you think you have what it takes to provide excellent content to a growing provider of Microsoft news, email Joe Rossignol at firstname.lastname@example.org.
