Dude, if you haven’t already downloaded the Windows 8 Release Preview, seriously what are you doing? Today at the Worldwide Partner Conference in Toronto, Microsoft announced that over 630 million installs of Windows 7 are around the globe.
Every one of them is going to be upgradable to Windows 8 for $40.
$40. Tell me you wouldn’t upgrade. I don’t believe you.
Let’s imagine only half of them upgrade. Your Windows 8 app could be available to over 300 million computers. And if you leverage the newfound commonality between Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 in your app (the Windows RunTime – WinRT – core), you will be targeting everything from phone, to tablet, to PC, to Workstation. In one fell swoop.
So seriously, download the Release Preview and Visual Studio 2012 RC and get started.

And hey, if you’re just plain & simple too lazy, then e-mail me with your idea so I can capitalize on it.
