The new Microsoft web platform began with IE9 … we did a lot of work to catch up to HTML5 standards.. And all of that work will pay up in Windows 8..

If you prefer to use your own library, you can. As long as your app is compliant with Metro SDK, you will be fine.. At build, we explicitly wrote a sample (finance) using jQuery… It works very well.. If you are bringing your own library, here is the advise that I can give you:Mix & Match works fine. WinJS does a lot of things well, such as simplifying the object model, wrappers for file system, implementing the promise pattern, etc.. Use WinJS for all of that.. Use your favorite library for everything else, but do try to adhere to the Metro UI and the Windows personality. Your users will appreciate it if you do..
