What is the relation between Net and WinRT?

(It Soft) #1

WinRT is relatively new and i would like to read about its relation to .Net framework.

You can build a WinRT app in 3 ways

  • .net
  • jscript
  • Unmanged C++

The WinRT “object” are ref counted like COM was, however they have good meta data so .net can make them look like .net objects. (likewise jscript can make them look like jscipt objects)

You don’t really need .Net to build WinRT
