Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

"As a developer I really would like Windows Runtime to fully replace Win32, but only time will tell if this really happens.


How would WinRT be able to replace Win32 when WinRT itself uses Win32? See e.g. http://arstechnica.com/features/2012/10/windows-8-and-winrt-everyth... for an in-depth explanation on this.
"

It makes use of Win32 today, no one can say how it will look like in Windows 9, or whatever it is going to be called.

would ==> indicating a possible (but not definite) future action or state

Gee, why do people have to try to explain this every time, without imagination how it might look some releases ahead.
