Windows In the article on Windows 8, I already mentioned that in order to demonstrate the viability of Metro for something other than Facebook and Twitter, Microsoft should come up with a Metro interface for Microsoft Office - one that doesn't leave out 90% of Office's features. Well, Microsoft has hinted that they are, indeed, working on Metro Office. In addition, it turns out Microsoft isn't entirely sure to how to address the issue if legacy applications on ARM.

Actually, the .NET applications will stay as they are.
There won't be any recompiles since they are stored as bytecode.

This is a big advantage to develop in .NET - your apps will continue to run on x86 while also being able to run on Windows 8 in the future.
