As far as I can understand MS is doing a great job in sharing and getting feedback with the dev community.
What I find annoying is the fact of so many developers out there freaking out just because it was announced that MS is looking into allowing Html5/CSS3 apps to written in Windows 8 (who is really jumping the shark here?). I'm not a web developer and I'm not scared consequently I don't see what the big deal is.
Do you want to make a difference? Be part of the dialog and voice your opinion about writing software because it looks like Steven has opened the doors.
