Quoting:And last but not least, it also offers a friendly suggestion that devs make sure to tweak their websites to work the Microsoft Way™ – including replacing Flash with HTML5, making sure pages are touch-friendly, and adding Windows 8 Start Screen tiles to sites so they're easier to navigate to from Microsoft's latest OS.

Ah, so Redmond didn't consider website coding problems with IE "compatibility" to be Microsoft's problem until Windows8. Let's make all those web pages Windows8 touchscreen friendly! Rah, rah.

Quoting:For now, the VMs are only compatible with Microsoft's own Hyper-V virtualization technology for Windows Server and Windows 8 Pro, but the modern.IE site says VMs for Linux and OS X are coming soon.

Right. I'm holding my breath.

Right on! M$ is just pulling its typical proprietary "leveraging" B$ of the first two EE's. Fortunately, it's way far away from doing the third E (=Extinguish) on anything other than its "Hyper-V virtualization technology for Windows Server and Windows 8 Pro"!
