Forget about all the debates about the efficacy and suitability of the various programming paradigms supported by Win 8. The real winner here is the new Windows 8 App Store. Finally here is a delivery mechanism an ordinary Windows developer never had before.
Create brilliant tools, small or big, price them low, put them on App Store and wait for the millions of users to switch to Windows 8. Remember, most of the PC users have IPhones or iPads and they have the taste for apps. They would welcome the concept of having a choice of cheap and cheerful apps to spice up their PCs.
Happy times ahead!
