Why Windows 8 does not mean the end for .NET development

Since the demo of Windows 8 given by Microsoft Vice President Julie Larson-Green at the recent D9 conference windows developers have been described in many articles as feeling "Horrified" "Worried" "Deeply Concerned". Why?
 
From the demo it seems that the new Window’s 8 ‘immersive’ applications will be based on HTML5 and JavaScript – which means for experienced win devs who have invested years in learning windows development platforms, they will now have to ‘re-train’ if they want to create these apps. This group is dedicated to programming with Microsoft tools, and now Microsoft seems to be implying that it’s time for them to move on.
 
But here’s why Microsoft developers have nothing to fear. Visual WebGui is a tool that enables .NET developers, to use their existing skill set and create rich, secured-by-design, HTML5 Rich internet applications. The VWG technology platform that combines virtualization and application streaming to enable data-centric enterprise desktop applications to run on secured-by-design internet environments, as if they are running in a desktop environment.

Visual WebGui ProStudio .NETHTML5 is the only total development environment in which programmers can develop efficient-running, data-centric HTML5 web apps in Visual Studio. It works through a combination of pure Microsoft .NET development, abstraction of Java Script / HTML5 functionality through jQuery and the abstraction of Ajax, database connectivity and data binding.
 
No matter what Microsoft confirms about Windows 8 come September, whether they decide to stop supporting .NET or put more emphasis on the advantages of HTML5 over it, VWG enables .NET to appear as HTML/HTML5 on the client. Visual WebGui ensures that Windows 8 does not mean the end for .NET development.

Gravatar I can't understand why they pumped up WPF so much and suddenly decided to switch to this new HTML5/JavaScript combination. Does it mean WPF could eventually go the way of Linq2Sql and several other technologies they pushed?

Gravatar I have been saying this for a while: Microsoft's web development strategy is in neeed of an overhaul. Why don't they just license (or buy) VWG, because its architecture is so much better than ASP.Net, ASP MVC, Silverlight or WPF, and certainly better than having developers hand write HTML5 and javascript. 6/18/2011 12:45 AM | Garry @ TriSys

Gravatar Might be the greatest thing in the world but it costs more than twice the price of Visual Studio itself.

Not quite a reason to stop worrying about the direction MS is taking and more like a clever bit of advertising. 6/22/2011 10:28 PM | Will Rubin

Gravatar Today they are ditching client side .Net. Whats the guarantee that server side .Net[Asp.net, WCF] would not face the same death? 7/1/2011 5:58 PM | David
