Please DO correct me if I am misinformed but so far this is what I know to be true in Windows 8:
- Desktop is legacy.
- .NET is legacy.
- In order to not use a legacy technology, WinRT is the way to go.
- All WinRT applications must be sold from Windows Marketplace.
Because the above seems to be the case, I plan to no longer develop for Windows "client".
The only option I currently seem to have without changing profession is to "move to server side" and making "web applications" in order to be able to sell directly to my customers or share applications privately.
My question is if any of you know how things will be on the server side regarding IIS and .NET?
I'm a little confused regarding .NET and its future. Will there be some kind of "server side WinRT" for IIS or is .NET the way to go for another 10 years over there?
