I liked those. Thanks for putting them on the table. But it does bother me some that Microsoft may be trying to get us away from the tools we love. And not to mention, I'm just getting started with it. But another bothersome thing is what about the tools and software already written in .net languages? For instance, there is a C# game engine called .net Gore. So then as the second article linked to, what about the hard work that goes into those types of things? From the way I interpret the articles, it does seem that Microsoft may stop supporting them in the future, so I suppose I'll have to hurry up, either that or live in the dark age. I mean, HTML is something I want to learn, but I feel that it should simply stay where it belongs, a.k.a, it's for the web and it shouldn't intrude on the main interface of the OS. And besides, though Microsoft may think that we can just give up our likes, but considering they have the .net compact framework for Windows Phone 7, and if this next generation is Windows Phone, what are they going to do, just throw that support away? I think that Microsoft might be getting a little too big for it's britches if you know what I mean. But just the same, I like Windows 8's prospects, and I'm sure that I'll be jumping on it when the time comes. My thing though is, what about servers? My dream one day is to host all of my group's needs on my own server including our web site, email server, communication/chat application, and then a couple of custom apps running on the .net framework. One of the articles said that we are moving away from the need for servers on the web because browsers are now more and more capable each generation of keeping their own state. What about everything I've lived for since I was like fifteen? I can't imagine that the client server model will just die out so quickly. We are too bound and loyal to it, and we rely upon it for too much of our infrastructure. In my opinion, this whole cloud computing thing will die out as well before Microsoft realizes what has hit them. What's your take? Do you agree with some of what I'm saying?
