I wish there were some reviews on there by people who hadn't owned WP before.
FWIW the site loaded fine in IE11 on Windows 7.

@figuerres: But does that fit in with REST?
It feels like I'm doing it wrong with a URL like that. /shrug
I guess I'd be doing POST calls in more of an RPC style...I know it's possible with Web API, but is it "correct"?
We're in the planning stages of a new project at work here. It will be consolidating all of the shipping calculation code into one place and then exposing it via an HTTP endpoint so that any client can pass in some parameters and get the shipping cost and method returned.
We had initially chosen Web API, but I'm having trouble seeing how our use case will fit into the standard /[resources]/[identifier] URI. We don't really have identifiers, we're just passing in some data and getting some out. Our endpoint is really just a function, not accessing any data store.
Does Web API still make sense? Should we be looking at WCF? We don't need any of the advanced features of WCF, so it seems like overkill.
@blowdart: I'm jealous. We're still on Windows 7, and our IT guys haven't even started evaluating Windows 10.
I don't think a couple of phones will change anything either, but it's hard to see the benefit of UWP if the only platform that's available is the PC. With Xbox and Phone, I think we'll see more people jumping on board with UWP. Why wouldn't you? It's almost like "here are a few more customers for free".
