I went to BUILD. I got my tablet. I spoke with many Microsofties about the strategy, the technology, etc. and came away with the feeling that Windows 8 has nothing for LOB app developers. It's all rich media, games, and fart apps for Windows 8. Maybe I'm just ignorant but it seem like Microsoft has little to say to the LOB app developer other than to say "just keep on using WPF, Silverlight, WinForms, or whatever -- we'll still support you." Remind me again what big improvements are coming down the pipe for WPF in .NET 4.5?
