@Warhead,

Please explain to us how betting the farm on HTML and JS is going to save Microsoft from the Barbarian Hordes, specially when neither of those technologies have nothing to do at all with the threat posed by Apple and Google.

Anyway, others have said this before very eloquently but it's worth repeating. The crowd cheering for "open" standards and the odd mixup that HTML/JS/CSS represents, they hate MS with a passion.

What would be MS achieving by trying to please that crowd while turning its back on the developers thay have been loyal to their own technologies?
