    My thoughts after finishing up the keynote.

    1. .NET desktop development is all but dead. ASP.NET will live on, but the future of desktop apps is WinRT using C#/XAML or JS/HTML. Even Silverlight seems to be on the way out. Did anyone notice him running WinRT-targeting code on the phone?

     

    Wait, how is .NET development all but dead if desktops apps will be WinRT using C#/XAML?

    Edit: Oh, I see what WinRT actually is now. Huh.
