Google "Google has revealed that it has no plans to develop dedicated apps for Windows 8 or Windows Phone 8 for its business app products such as Gmail or Drive." Product management director for Google Apps, Clay Bavor, told V3 that Google "will go where the users are but they are not on Windows Phone or Windows 8". Ouch - but for now, hard to argue with.

beat me to it, WinRT is built on Win32.

I agree that in one sense i would prefer more compeition as even apple has been a little lax with their design because they think they own the market.

I also agree with Google, why spend resources on a platform that may not fully play out, when they get a bigger share Google will develop for them, Google gets its revenue from access their web services, they don't really care how you do it, laptop, windows, mac, android as long as you connect.
