The point is I'm working to bring the 2 together so if Microsoft think they can lever people onto Modern UI only or WinRT only that just raises a further challenge for me to provide common development for both their old and new platforms.
Platform lock-in is a bad thing whoever does it and not only if it's between platform suppliers. Microsoft put up a lot of barriers to platform portability already and I have knocked down all but a handful (64bit exception handling is still a mystery), a few more just makes the challenge more interesting.
