Beside myself, I know many and know personally 3 programmers who will never ever touch WinRT because of the lock-in. That you must ask Microsoft for permission to distribute your program AND give them 30% of it AND forced to be a public application.

Developers are jumping ship right and left.

If this trend continues in Windows 9, Windows 8 won't be just another Vista but Microsoft will go the way of IBM. It might already be too late.

I no longer TRUST Microsoft. That is a HUGE issue which Microsoft isn't seeing here.

When your developers are jumping ships, it is the beginning of the end.

But of course, this being Channel 9, the den of unpolite fools, most regulars will never understand it.
