Windows Paul Thurrot: "Tipped off by a reader, I checked my System log in Event Viewer today and what did I find but a stack of pending updates for all of the core apps in Windows 8. I'm not 100 percent sure this is what I think it is. But if we're right, it looks like 18 of the core apps in Windows 8 are about to get updated. Or, almost all of them." Foley confirms it. By far Windows 8's weakest link, so I'm hoping this is true. Especially the Mail application is dreadful.

I think they suffer from lack of competition.

There are some posts in MSDN forums which state Microsoft was only having one guy for Visual C++ bug fixes in the days the company was 100% on .NET (around early Vista days).

The .NET 4.5 is the first version where the JIT rewrites code, something that Java JITs are doing for ages.
