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."

Isn't this admittance that the CLR as system platform concept (expressed heavily during the Windows .NET era) has ultimately failed?
WinRT looks to be what CLR was supposed to be, pushed lower level to support serious C++ right (read COM 2). CLR on the other hand is left as a high level application dev wrapper/runtime for ever. Looks like dreams of managed only OS'es will remain pipe forever.
