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.

Because WinRT is an abstraction ontop of Win32, it can just as easily have Win32 removed in the future with consumers of the WinRT being none the wiser.

People always point this out "WinRT is built on Win32" as if it matters. .NET is built on Win32, but you don't really say you as a developer are consuming Win32 because you're not.

That means you're not tied to the behavior of Win32, but to the behavior of WinRT. Its more than a subtle difference when it comes to legacy.
