Thanks. I didn't even know about this WinRT. New technologies are appearing
all the time.

Page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_RunTime
says that WinRT is a
API and uses a .NET-like metadata format.
So it is not native code after all then. I don't know why they advertised
it as native. I guess it is faster than .NET code because it is not
managed. I thought that .NET allows non-managed code, too.

Anyway, I believe Windows Phone will attract both developers and users in
future. It is a rather good environment for programming.
Things are not completely hopeless for Nokia and other Windows Phone makers
