Everything in Update 2 is in Update 3. Is there a reason not to install Update 3?

@bitFlinger: With the Cordova extension, you can build Windows 8, Windows Phone 8, iOS and Android apps. To build Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps, you have to be running Windows 8. If you have Windows 7, you could only build iOS and Android apps.
@bitFlinger: You need Windows 8 to build Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 apps. See the requirements for the Phone emulator here. To build Windows 8 apps, you could use a Win 8 VM. But that won't work for Phone apps.
You can build iOS and Android apps with the Xamarin tools on both Windows 7 and 8.
@Ryur: This was a 1 part show. No part 2.
@rogreen: While we are on the subject of being picky, let me be picky about something else I said. I said that Visual Studio Online and the new Azure Portal will be merged and are going to combine. I was not making a global statement. I meant it in the context of that particular scenario (Application Insights). The Azure preview portal brings together many services, both from Microsoft (including VS Online) and other providers to produce a more connected experience. Check it out and let us know what you think.
