    So I have a hard time buying into the thinking that Win8 is just the same as Win7 on the desktop side. And forget the thought of making your LOB applications work in the "Modern" UI framework. All of the videos and talks about this from Microsoft have left me scratching my head. None of them seem to go beyond what I would consider a dashboard. Where are the stock trading or ERP apps that really get work done? Everything I've seen (like the app from SAP) are nothing more than a fancy dashboard. If they want all us developers to move to that environment, where are the real productivity apps that we can look to as models? I'm really looking for answers here!

    Haven't they always stated that this is what desktop apps are for?
