DUDES, Windows 8 is NOT Windows Phone 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Microsoft absolutely sucks at marketing (though I thought they were getting better until their mobile OS naming for 7).

    I have seen too much crazy confusion on all the boards - news flash:  Windows Phone 8 is NOT Windows 8.  They are completely different platforms.

    Also, quit crying... Silverlight is not going away, on either platform, and HTML5/JS is being implemented to try to attract a broader base of development.  .Net still rocks.

  • Windows phone 8 of couse is not Windows 8.  Just like windows 7 is for pcs and windows phone 7 is for mobiles.  Silverlight may not used as the default develop platform on Windows 8.  However, I guess every thing is possible unless they release it.  HTML is the future.
