I have been talking a lot about Windows 8 recently and my slides have been using the architecture images Microsoft releases at Build 2011 & that awesome one Doug Seven created. However I have still found a lot of discussion exists even with those and they are showing their age.

I have tried to create a new one recently that addresses those issue:

  • Age: DirectX can be used by VB/C# in addition to C++ now.
  • Age: How does Windows Phone 8 fit the picture – note this may change, it is based on my assumptions and half info we have gotten.
  • Discussion: Is WinJS = WinRT?
  • Discussion: is .NET = WinRT?
  • Discussion: Can I use my own JavaScript libraries like jQuery?
  • Discussion: Can I use WinJS on the web?
  • Discussion: Can I build desktop apps on Windows 8?
  • Discussion: Can desktop apps run on Windows 8 ARM CPU's.
  • Discussion: How does the language projection fit in?

Clearly this wouldn’t work in a single image – so I have created a slide deck that has a great overview image and also has build up experiences where step-by-step it builds the image with information and hopefully during that answers all the questions.
