Google does a live demo of honeycomb at CES:
It's about time Microsoft to conceeded their strategy to lock people in to their operating systems.
At CES this week hardware vendors are announcing for the first time in a long while a dizzying array of computers which depend on zero software from Microsoft. A wide array of tablet computers, based on Google's forthcomming honeycomb operating systems, will be showcased today, tomorrow, and through the weekend.
Unfortunately, fans of Microsoft's developer tools will be left in the cold.
Microsoft needs to realize that they can't continue their current path without bleeding away developers. If Microsoft were to start officially making Visual Studio with Dotnet and Silverlight able to target other operating systems (please don't mention mono, moonlight, or monodevelop ... they lag too far behind), they would be able to keep and attract developers to Windows. And by "offically", I mean keeping Silverlight current on all platforms/operating system and/or agressively maintaining Dotnet assemblies to with work with the latestest MacOS/iOS/Android releases.
As it stands right now, a lot of new and existing developers are buying Apple computers to develop iPhone/iPad software or switching to Eclipse (which can run on Linux) to develop for Android.
