This project is actively developed by the WinJS developers working for Microsoft Open Technologies, in collaboration with the community of open source developers. Together we are dedicated to creating the best possible solution for HTML/JS/CSS application development.
Another bit of Build news: WinJS has been released under the Apache 2.0 license.
So this is apparently an alternative to building Windows Store apps with C#/XAML. What is actually the preferred method, esp with the new ‘Windows everywhere’ announcement today? Does this change anything? I mean, what do you use when you want your stuff to run on all those platforms?

Nice. But I hoped, that Microsoft would publishing .NET under an OpenSource-license during the //build/-conference.
The source code of .NET is already published
it is only not OpenSource.
I thoughted so, because there was some rumor, that Microsoft could acquire Xamarin:
And Xamarin is the main-developer of the OpenSource .net-implementation Mono:
I think, Microsoft wouldn’t have lost anything, if they have had done it. But they would have won a happy OpenSource-community.
For me, Satya Nadella is disappointingly.
Not much opensourcing.
Going straight the way of Steve Ballmer:
The Win8.1 update becomes the start-menu back, but with live tiles and all the Win8.x shit.
His new mantra is “mobile first, cloud first”:
and so on.
