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.

Is everyone just looking deeply into the gifted horse's mouth? Seriously, it's a free application that you're complaining about, go ask for your money back if you're so disappointed.

For one, I'm happy that at least Windows will allow me to use the same framework to build tablet and desktop apps. On Android or iOS, I'll have to write an app separate from the desktop equivalents.
