    @W3bbo:Let's hope not. I'm still hoping the entire development community will wake up to just how awful HTML/CSS/JS is and unanimously ditch it for something less stupid. I think only Prolog would rate as a less pleasant choice for universal app development.

    @magicalclick: Or you can change the text size setting in Windows and stuff will look huge on any display. (not just text but all windows/icons) Just search for Text in Windows start menu.

    that's why I have 125% DPI.

    Like I said, some apps breaks, thus, I didn't do 150% DPI or actually I want 200% DPI. Apps that breaks horribly = VS2008. The intelsense is completely screwed up and the property windows are gigantic to become useless. VS2010 finally fixed it though.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Since Windows 8 applications will be written in HTML5 and JavaScript, they should run on phones as well. This really shouldn't be surprising to anyone.

    Really? Do you know something we don't?

    yeah.... how many will that be?

    how many iphone apps today that are popular are html based? some are but how many are native apps?  i bet it's like 75% native or more... just a guess i admit but i bet it's at least that.

    @PaoloM:

    Actually I don't know. The title says Win8 runs WinPh7, not the other way around.

     

    Going offtopic:

    As far as I can tell, there will be extra security on the WinPh7 IE that some things would not work as expected.
