    This fantastic news from Microsoft. It's exactly what Microsoft has needed to do for a long time. Hopefully they won't be limited to just the latest and greatest devices related technology (i.e. WinRT) but will include what many of us deal with day in and day out. It also brings some hope as they dogfood their own technology that some of the rough edges will get some long overdue polish.

    Being that C9 runs along a similar vein I wonder will we be seeing new content here from this new group or will it be a new entity in and of iteself with it's own means of publication? 

    If we all believed in unicorns and fairies the world would be a better place.

    @DeathByVisualStudio: I hope by "top developers outside the company" they don't mean just developers of the flavor-of-the-month social apps on the other platforms. I couldn't care less if they "lured" over the developers of Instagram or Vine or some stupid 99-cent casual game with 30 million downloads. I'd rather see some really innovative stuff that's not on any other platform.

    @cbae:

    Well if this is correct then there is some hope:

    Microsoft's new deep-tech team includes anyone who writes a consumer, business or hybrid application. That means startups, enterprise customers and top consumer and business independent software vendors (ISVs).

    As we know from recent discussions here on the relevence of C9 to a lot of LOB/enterprise programmers is ceratinly is a concern. It's be a shame if it was just another means to promote "New Windows".
