Windows For Microsoft, the traditional desktop is old news. It's on its way out, it's legacy, and the harder they claim the desktop has equal rights, the sillier it becomes. With companies, words are meaningless, it's actions that matter, and here Microsoft's actions tell the real story. The company has announced the product line-up for Visual Studio 11, and the free Express can no longer be used to create desktop applications. Message is clear.

Err Visual Studio Express being Metro only, does not mean you can't run Matlab or whatever on Windows 8.

I will seriously LMAO if they have a VS11 C++ edition, after this comment.
