Microsoft BizSpark division posted a rather entertaining yet encouraging message to their facebook followers:
iOS developers, I have something for you. A message from the Windows 8 team:
Message from Windows 8 –
‘We care about all startups no matter what platform they are currently familiar with, we will try our best to help them take advantage of the Window Store. In fact, on Dec. 13th and 14th we’ve partnered with the Big Nerd Ranch, a prominent iOS training company to host a Free Windows app development training specifically tailored for iOS app developers. The event will be live streamed on the verge, make sure you check it out.”

Brilliant I say! But this once again shows just how much Microsoft not only values developers, but their commitment to provide services to all despite their preferred platform!
