What ‘Shared Core’ Does – And Doesn’t - Mean
• Shared Core means
• OS components such as the kernel, networking, graphics support, file system and multimedia are the same
on both Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8
• Hardware manufacturers work with the same driver model on both platforms
• Windows Phone gets the support for multi-core and other hardware features that Windows has had for
years
• These solid, common foundations makes it easier to extend the Windows Phone platform into the future
• It doesn’t mean
• Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 developers work to exactly the same APIs
• (though you will see more commonality as new features are introduced to both platforms in the future)
