@DeathByVisualStudio:"To which I counter with "and throw out your app capatibility with it; your options on ARM will be limited to media, social, internet, and fart apps for some time."
I agree with that statement completely. Also, that power management killing my wireless connection is very annoying.
Also, they wasted so much on getting C++ to work with WINRT to make metro apps that they did not even implement the C++ new standard yet. Who in the right mind would do a metro app in C++? I use C++ in many places but I won't use it in that case.
I was somewhat disappointed at Build by their story with some of the Metro stuff. I think this story will/should change but Microsoft is big and about alot of technologies which are very good. I think Azure, Windows 7, boot time, App Store, DirectX, C# /.NET is all good.
