It's kind of particularly interesting that they announced it so far ahead of time... Specifically to speak to us developers.

There's a lot of speculation that they are really trying to create leadership in developer relations with this new launch (which seems inline with the whole Microsoft strategy).

Probably following up with tools which help folks write apps for both Windows and their line of Android devices, starting with this one.

So in a way it doesn't matter that this won't be out for a year because what they are gearing up for is mostly to get developers into their ecosystem as much as possible.

That definitely lines up with most of what MS is doing these days. Generally, I think it's a good strategy. Their OSS stuff has slowly won me over, even though I don't think I'll ever use Windows as my primary OS (but maybe I'm wrong about this).
