I am fine to be told that I can get my app created better if I use a new tech.
However, I feel like the latest shift to "Modern Apps" had a more fundamental switch.
Instead of saying "your doing it wrong" they said "what you want to do is wrong". Instead of wanting an enterprise app, you really want to build a consumer app.
And if you are sure that you don't want a consumer app, then double check because we are sure you do.
Of course they did not say this directly, but if you look at all the articles in the last year here on Channel Nine (and by MS bloggers) the vast majority of them are "Consumer Style" focused. In fact "Modern Apps" are consumer styled by default (less dense data, larger fonts etc)
And for me that leads to this quote ringing true:
I was always interested in what was new from Microsoft until they started moving away from the Enterprise. Which (for me) was started by dropping support Windows Mobile/Smart Device projects in Visual Studio 2010. (Windows Mobile was terrible for consumers, but it was awesome for enterprises.)
Despite the above articles, I don't believe Microsoft is planning to do anything concrete about it. They may say stuff about it. But I don't think they will change directions and re-embrace the enterprise.
