    Ya, of course,,

    Currently Android is the King of OS in Tablet devices (7 inch display). Windows 8 has plan to get maximum base. That's why they quickly launched Developer preview.

    Will Windows 8 Run with Windows Phone 7 Apps?

    It probably will not. While the software part would be easy, some hardware aspects make it unfeasible. Besides the outfit (What does an application designed for 4'' portrait display, do in a 24'' HD display with landscape orientation?), multi-touch would be a real problem.

    Thank you wizard_hu_ .I asked that question because Windows 8 designed for both PCs and tablets(ARM based) ; majority of mobile applications are written for ARM based system.(WP7 apps are built on top of Silverlight, which is a multi-platform technology)

    Re: Java support

    Have any non-Microsoft tools and frameworks (Php, Java,..) support in Metro style app development other than C, C++, C#, Visual Basic, HTML5/JavaScript , XAML(Jupiter).

    Yes, I know how that question arises, just wrote my opinion.
    Note that ARM and other processor architectures do not matter here, WP7 applications run in a virtual machine, similar to Java applications. The multi-platform-ness comes from the underlying .Net technology. That is what I mean on writing "the software part would be easy".

    Re: Windows 8 Developer preview available

    Talking about support of/by non-Microsoft tools is probably a bit early, Windows 8 is in an early development phase. Also remember that this is still a site about development for Nokia (mobile) products, so this is not necessarily the definitive source of information about a desktop-ish Microsoft software which is rumored to be released more than a year from now at a minimum.
    It is absolutely sure that Microsoft will not put any effort into supporting Java/Php/etc. Why would it do that?
