Windows 8 for software developers


Microsoft sees Metro Style apps as the future.

Silverlight and .Net are not dead (yet). They are mainly a means to write classic/Desktop apps, and not the new, “Metro-style” apps that Microsoft will be playing up in Windows 8.

There are two classes of applications that can be built and run on Windows 8 PCs and tablets. One is “Metro Style” applications. These are the modern, immersive applications that are going to get front-and-center billing. (“Metro” is the name of the design language that Microsoft pioneered with Windows Phone 7.) Developers writing Metro Style apps can code them in C, C++, C#, Visual Basic, HTML5/JavaScript and/or using XAML. The inclusion of XAML here implies “Jupiter,”

The second class of applications that can be built and run on Windows 8 PCs and tablets is called “Desktop” applications. These are applications that users can access by clicking on the Desktop tile in Windows 8. They don’t have to be immersive; they can look and feel like classic Windows applications that don’t assume that users will want/need to rely on touch as the primary way that they interact with them. Examples of existing Desktop apps that will work on Windows 8 are things like Photoshop.

Microsoft mostly talking how developers can use HTML5 and JavaScript to write the new, immersive, “Metro style” applications for the platform. There are very few about .Net, Visual Basic and C#. And there are none how developers can use non-Microsoft tools and frameworks (PHP, Ruby, etc.) to write Windows 8 apps. And there are none on Silverlight.
