As example of the confusion: Tim Anderson's blog writing about an interview with Scott Guthrie[^]. Do note the wild diversity, and contradictions, in the various readers' comments.
One wonders if integrating Flash is, on a primary level, an anti-iPad/Apple geo-political move; but one might ask: why not SilverLight; unless one claims, as some responders to the article above do, that WinRT + XAML is "SilverLight 6."
IE10 on Metro and WinRT supposed to be the "no plug-in" browser, so MS emphasized in various public statements, so I thought.
I remain confused about whether on ARM hardware in Win8, other browsers, other than IE10 will be usable.
All attempts at un-confusing me are appreciated

I try to build a simple windows 8 Metro Style application in JS or C# , I wonder if I can select a picture from an images gallery and put it as wallpaper on my desktop . I already checked few answers but its not working on Windows 8. Any code will Help I used VS2012 with Win8 RP
They have really cleaned up alot of things in the RC version. Even a problem that I was having with the ListView control during my app review with Microsoft, was fixed in the new version. I have the consumer preview and RC both as VMs on my Win7 machine. I even installed the RC on my youngest son's laptop and it works well for him too.
When Vista came out and was pre-installed on desktop purchases people would wipe their HDD and install they already licenced XP loosing nothing (sort of.. to all appearances atleast) and keeping familiarity.
However wiping a system that comes with Win 8 to put Win 7 on it you are giving up on metro entirely, with out trying it.
I am not saying people will like it or not. I am more saying I think people may just use it to not give up something they are unsure about.
If the store ends up with apps that work well even in the desktop setting you would not even know about it if you wiped it.
I think many will cling to Win7. But I also think many will just go with the flow of the microsoft river.
Enterprise is likely different. But I have said this before. Microsoft knows the enterprise will not upgrade already. Enterprise will be targeted with their new tablets as the enterprise has yet to buy into that.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
I am working on a C# Metro app in VS2011 Beta. When I run the Windows App Certification Kit my application doesn't show up. What's strange is that other apps I've done do show up. I have no answer for why some show up and some don't.
Anyone know what needs to be done in VS or my app to make it visible in the app cert tool?
