@cbae:

i think tomorrows keynote will make alot of these things much clearer, it seems like microsoft is always putting the developer stuff in the day2 keynote. the last two pdcs both had [boring] azure stuff on day one and devdiv stuff on day two

i might agree that parts of .net and silverlight will take a backstage to win8/winRT apis such as directUI and the network stuff, but that is pretty much transparent as far as i can tell

we'll be using a diffrent namespace and reference some other dll for some stuff, thats all.
