The techcrunch blog is a fav or mine and I follow it religiously. However, unlike most of their readers I’m not building a startup on the back of some open-source framework. If Microsoft ever get’s mentioned over there it’s usually in a not so flattering light. So imagine my surprise to see this exciting post about Jupiter. It states that Jupiter is not the departure from .Net many imagined, but a way to build HTML compatible apps on Windows, Phone, and presumably Office using the XAML and C# I know and love. I don’t know if it’s true but if it is what a great turn of events!
I guess a lot remains to be seen and those lucky enough to have their golden ticket to the sold-out Build conference will likely get the 1st look. I will be closely monitoring twitter and other channels for any glimmers of hope.
