Windows 8 Dev Build Released

And Windows developers across the world breathe a sigh of relief, as the Windows 8 Build team announces that Windows 8 will support apps written in HTML5/Javascript, C/C++, and/or C#/XAML. This is a huge weight off our shoulders, as many feared that we would have to leave behind our C# skills and move to HTML5/Javascript. I don’t mind Javascript for web coding, but to have to build all my apps like that would just be a nightmare.

The Dev preview of Windows 8 will be available later tonight, and I’ll be downloading the x64 Dev ISO and installing it to a VM forthwith. :-D
