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.

Not exactly.... I am calling the reports pinned to metro a toy. Content consuming screenshots were referenced, not content creation.

Do you think its fundamentally undo able in Metro? It just requires a bit more though than just dumping a data grid with editable cells on form.

Its an interesting discussion to say the least.
