It was great fun to watch Steven Sinofsky presenting Windows 8. But I have a small lingering doubt, reminding me of hearing Tom Henriksson presenting Nokia's view of the future in Düsseldorf last December. To talk about the importance of mobility and touch seems al little pasé, to say the least.
But it was fun, and I'm clearly impressed. Mostly on how they have managed to curb the excesses in Windows uses of memory and processes, and that Windows 8 runs on ARM processors also.
So my initial tweet that XAML and HTML was at equal was wrong. Sorry for that!
