Windows 8 is a completely reimagined Windows. You can code once and have a great app experience that scales across devices from tablets to all-in-one PCs, from 10" to 27" screen sizes. The new Windows Store provides flexibility for selling your app and higher profit potential than any other App Store – with an 80% revenue share when you reach $25,000 USD or more in total sales. Windows Runtime gives you the flexibility to build native apps using C#, C++ and JavaScript. Or you can build apps using web technologies like HTML5, Level 3 (CSS3).
