General Development "Looking past the Metro hype, the Build conference also revealed promising road maps for C#, Visual Studio, and the .Net platform as a whole. Perhaps the most exciting demo of the conference for .Net developers, however, was Project Roslyn, a new technology that Microsoft made available yesterday as a Community Technology Preview. Roslyn aims to bring powerful new features to C#, Visual Basic, and Visual Studio, but it's really much more than that. If it succeeds, it will reinvent how we view compilers and compiled languages altogether."

But from what I observe it is for metro-only applications - 30 years on and Microsoft still haven't come up with the horrific mess that is common controls and dialogues.

So what. Metro is the future of Windows. The desktop baggage is going to take a long time to die off, but there's no reason why an average Win8 tablet user really has to deal with the desktop, if they're running nothing but Metro apps.
