If you get the Windows 8 Tablet with x86(x64), then it'll run all Metro and legacy Windows apps.If you get the Windows 8 Tablet with ARM, then you'll only get Metro and/or ARM compiled desktop apps.I am not sure how will MS market the x86 vs ARM. I can see potential for confusion when someone buys the ARM tablet version expecting full Windows legacy apps.
MS has already demoed Office 2010 on Windows 8 SoC ARM during CES 2011 in June 2011. By the time Windows 8 is released in 2012, they'll have a fully functional Office suite for ARM. The big question is whether it'll be a desktop app or Metro app. I think it's the former.

So yes, the Metro apps have access to powerful APIs and your choice of programming languages. And yes, the Metro apps will be able to run apps like 3d games and similar apps. Each title is a dynamic representation of the apps. The apps themselves are programmed in the mentioned languages. And no, they're not glorified widget.
Even when Microsoft copies, they can't even copy correctly. The picture speaks for itself.
Microsoft already had the idea of Windows Store for Windows 8 a year ago when their plan was leaked. Their problem is getting it first market, and even then it might not be as successful as the Mac App Store.http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/new...-in-august.arsedit: Looks like bettieblue beat me to it.
I am curious. What did they copy from ios5?
Please excuse my ignorance. In what ways is Silverlight garbage? Compared to what? Please remember Silverlight is managed code.
I don't see how it's a fair comparison to compare something that was built in 2004 vs 2008. The technology (processor, cooling methods, battery technology, etc...) in 2008 leapfrogged by many folds compared to 2004. The processor architecture change from Pentium M to Core 2 was nothing short of magical. Everything got smaller, cheaper, faster, and more efficient (less heat = less cooling required). The Sony X505 was the true innovator prior with the tampered design. And...
The wedge design was from Sony back in 2004 with the Sony X505.http://www.flickr.com/photos/airwave...n/photostream/http://www.flickr.com/photos/airwave...n/photostream/http://www.weblogsinc.com/common/ima...42647363857573http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=djxLKQQEf34
Isn't MS doing the thing that Apple did with iOS? Apple derived iOS from OS X (Darwin & XNU kernel). Now, Microsoft is doing the same thing and deriving the NT subsystems for ARM. Anything that's not suitable for tablet touchscreen are removed. The UI is rewritten from scratch for touchscreen usage, like iOS. The ARM version of Windows 8 doesn't run any of the legacy Windows apps, but it'll use the new app model (called appx) that's portable for ARM and x86.
