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?

They complement each other. WinRT is replacing Win32 not .Net.

.Net developers can also directly make access of WinRT APIs. It is still C#, VB.Net, F# and so on.

One of the good things of WinRT is that Hungarian notation is finally dead. Even Microsoft coding guidelines now advice against it, by calling a relic.
