It would make more sense for me to develop Windows 8 apps, if it were a PhoneGap target. I've spend a good part of the last ten years developing desktop LOB apps.

Having bothered to learn JavaScript and the intricacies of the DOM, I ask myself why in the world would I write an app that is basically a browser host app, but only targets Windows 8 computers?

It would be like I was in the cup making business, but my cups could only be used to contain peanut butter and jelly flavored vodka. The stuff exists, and it is pleasing to the senses, but it will never represent a large portion of the beverages people consume.
