    Will Microsoft make the Segoe UI font family free too?

    Paul, will there be any guidance released for how you took a WinJS project and installed it on your Ipad using the Apache Cordova stuff?  I would really like to see a demo that takes you from WinJS in Visual Studio to publishing and running on Ipad. Thanks!

    I'd love to see a deep dive on how to integrate WinJS and AngularJS in a LOB application.  I'd love to bring the Win8 UI to other devices.

    @jolleekin, at this time we're not making the whole Segoe UI font family freely available.  For now you'll need to either pick an alternative font that's available across all your target platforms - possibly a web font - or rely on the fallbacks to other fonts for targets that don't have the Segoe UI font family.  We are actively exploring solutions for a few things related to this, howver, including the font glyphs used in controls like the app bar.  Stay tuned on the WinJS GitHub project for updates there.

    @eweiss1979, thanks that's a great suggestion.  Stay tuned. :)

    @bap, thanks for the suggestion. You might find the Angular / WinJS adapter I showed in my session helpful here as one tool.  We'll definitely look at having more sessions / materials to dive deeper onto this topic in the future given the interest.
