    Totally boggles my mind that Win8 programming would involve JavaScript instead of C#.Net.

    I really don't understand what Microsoft is thinking anymore these days.

    they want to make web developers develop software for Win8. It is all deliberate part of scheme to make their mobile OS popular by increasing pool of developers for it.

    It doesn't boggle my mind that Javascript and HTML5 is their focus, but what boggles my mind is their insane idea to gimp VS.Net Express so that you can't produce real apps without shelling out for the Pro version.

    Um... C#, C++, and HTML5/CSS/Javascript are all supported development paths. Obviously, having one book that covers all three would be rather redundant, since there's little reason to mix and match between the two.

    Here's Programming Windows, 6th edition, which focuses on the C# development path: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0790145369079.do
