Windows Peter Bright has written a fascinating and well researched look into the real architecture and general internals of WinRT that largely contradicts some commonly accepted marketecture myths propagated by Microsoft (namely that WinRT is a new peer, NT native subsystem and framework alternative to traditional Win32 that doesn't depend on traditional Windows frameworks). Given all the recent news and discussions regarding the future of Windows and the openness of the platform, understanding WinRT's actual underpinnings and technical place in the Windows stack will prove valuable.

For me being able to develop desktop applications in WinRT means being able to use 100% WinRT, otherwise I won't bother at all to propose that to my customers.

The cool thing about WinRT is that Visual C++ is finally offering the same RAD functionality the C++ Builder was offering in 1997.

But if this is constrained to tablets, then I won't care.
