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.

A question about .Net

One question. With the new API introduced in Windows 8, which aims at both "Desktop" and Mobile platforms. Are they ditching .Net???

Off topic: the "Desktop" (in quotes) because for me it looks like a magnified (larger) phone screen, lol.
