Windows 8 already does a fairly good job of allowing for development using a number of programming languages. That is one of the biggest advantages it brings for developers, and will definitely do a lot to draw people into designing Metro UI applications. Despite the success so far in making this work, the company is looking to draw in more support and therefore more developers.
Martyn Lovell, Development Manager for the WinRT team, made an appeal for developers to create new languages with WinRT in mind. He explained that the overall philosophy of WinRT’s production has been to have native, managed, and dynamic languages.
