General Development "Looking past the Metro hype, the Build conference also revealed promising road maps for C#, Visual Studio, and the .Net platform as a whole. Perhaps the most exciting demo of the conference for .Net developers, however, was Project Roslyn, a new technology that Microsoft made available yesterday as a Community Technology Preview. Roslyn aims to bring powerful new features to C#, Visual Basic, and Visual Studio, but it's really much more than that. If it succeeds, it will reinvent how we view compilers and compiled languages altogether."

"So what's the deal... is MS leaving .NET behind, or are they not? I thought WinRT was supposed to be the new 'Jesus API' to rule them all?

I'm sure that .NET will be around for a long time for server development. But WinRT is the new Windows client API.

But from what I observe it is for metro-only applications - 30 years on and Microsoft still haven't come up with the horrific mess that is common controls and dialogues.
