Win8+ Roadmap Speculation – Tongue-in-cheek
This posting is total speculation (very much Tongue-in-cheek), looking forwards into the post Windows 8 future UI roadmap. Based on what Microsoft said at BUILD, I suspect a number of people a thinking similar thoughts:
- XAML and HTML – Why have the choice? If the world is going HTML5, then why not start to phase out XAML, and move to 100% HTML as the markup language. Prediction: XAML will become legacy in future.
- Win8 Metro style is Microsoft attempting to improve the application build/deployment/run experience. WinRT and all its goodness is clearly the UI framework of the future. Prediction: WinRT will become the CLR of the future.
