Windows 8, which was introduced at the Microsoft BUILD conference last year, is an exciting new OS that introduced a new UI as well as a new runtime: Windows Runtime, called WinRT. It's the backbone of the new Metro experience in Windows 8. Like many others, I've been playing with Windows 8 and kept hearing that Silverlight skills can be reused in Metro-style applications. I decided to find out for myself by taking a Silverlight 2 project and seeing how easy it was to port to a Windows 8 Metro application using C#/XAML.
