Perceptions are everything in the media, and Microsoft is no exception. Recently, some developers have expressed concern that Microsoft seems to be leaning heavily on HTML5 and JavaScript as the defacto standard for future Windows development, and moving away from .NET. The truth is, .NET is going to be around for a long time, like it or not.
