At its TechEd conference today, Microsoft announced the next step in its "mobile first, cloud first" strategy with a preview of Apache Cordova support in Visual Studio. Cordova is a toolkit for building apps for iOS, Android, and Windows using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. With the Cordova integration, Visual Studio will directly support building apps for all of these platforms.

This new thing Microsoft's got going on takes a bit of getting used to. I hope it sticks for once, because this company has changed direction more often than a politician in need of campaign funding.

It´s a logical thing to do

Microsoft´s new strategy is "devices and services". Before they were basically an OS provider+leveraging that OS (and Office for Mac but anything apart from that). Now they develop for other OSs (Office, OneNote for Android, etc) so it´s logical that they want people to use their OS as a development plataform.
