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 I could write a WinRT component in C#, have the metadata autogenerated, and use it in C++ as if it was a native C++ class. Or use it in Javascript as a native javascript object.

And nothing is preventing Microsoft of compiling .Net directly to native code instead om MSIL. like they do with Bartok/Spec# in Singularity.
