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."

I don't know but the Windows 8 app store *idea* just makes me want to puke.

Sadly with Apple having such success with their mobile app store and now releasing the same fee charging 'prison' MS thinks this is the way to go.

I bet it makes development more expensive, and the returns to many developers will be lower.

Once Windows 8 hits with the app store I'll basically make the full switch to the mac. If I have to deal with a walled garden, nazi run operating system then at least I should deal with the nicest one there is to use.
