It's the wind of changes... i believe they're trying to get a hold in some emerging markets (Surface, cough, Windows Phone 8, cough) and supporting old stuff, will distract them from that purpose , what i personally dislike is that having the opportunity to have one plataform (WinRT or the .NET Framework) to support all their plataforms (Windows 8, Phone, Xbox, whatever), they just simply play with several variants that are akin but not alike.
