It is quite exciting that a beta release is imminent, with a lot of anticipated but as yet unconfirmed features. Although the title says Windows 8, I mean all three PC, Tablet and Phone
I would like to see announcements about additional resources being added to support WinRT on the desktop. Enterprise Library 6 came out a week or so ago, and will be the first version of it that won't be used by an Enterprise. We are developing software for enterprise customers to be consumed on PC and Laptop, but since there are a lot of XP laptops floating about, and the odd desktop, it is an impossibility for any Enterprise to use .NET 4.5. It is a difficult one, as I agree that XP has had its day, but in the real world, we would lose sales by enforcing .NET 4.5. If we could access WinRT from the desktop, it would make it easier to convince our bosses to develop WinRT applications
I would like emphasis to be placed on Windows as a popular OS, for the poor or the wealthy. As long as Android is fully customisable by Samsung and HTC and so on, it presents the most attractive platform for third parties to develop their products, as they can customise the OS to their liking. HTC or Samsung (including the ecosystem) have significant budgets and with the application model Andriod offers. Google Chrome and Android are now unassilable and figures that have taught me that change really is the only constant
I would also like additional resources to added to C#/VB to support Machine Learning like syntax, this is a bit of a DSL but statements like
get charactaristics to an object (taxonomic structure) returning all fields on an object
is it true that x has property
show similarities between Person with value 1 and 13
confidence..........what about Person where musictaste = 'grime' with confidence 0.5
4. This one is complicated by how you're choosing to do your statistics, and could be extremely expensive to build the machine learning set if you have to do that on a whole database each time per query. This might be a better thing for a library or at a push, SQL server to provide, rather than for C#.
