@Dr Herbie: except Otherwise Microsoft has led a lot of people down a dead-end path, and that's a serious betrayal of trust.
To date nobody at Microsoft has had the cojones to stand up and answer this truthfully. It is almost a case of if you keep telling yourself a lie, you will eventually start to believe it?
I think I have said enough in this forum, and don't intend to keep sounding like a broken record, I feel I am the sort of guy that could make WinRT fly, but now view the company that I championed for so many years negatively, and in true form they don't really care.
Anyway, I have said my piece.
