A quick question if someone is familar with this...
I know that if i want to develop for a surfaceRT tablet I have to use xaml with c#/vb.net....or JS.
But can I build a normal .NET web application and put it on a surfacePro tablet (I presume surfacePro has IIS) and will it run like a normal surface app i.e. the user can touch enter text? Or does the app have to be in a diffferent format than traditional
asp.net to allow touch screen.

Thanks for that...but does anyone know if a normal asp.net web application can run as touch screen in a browser when a user opens it on a surfacePro...or do you have to develop in another format so its touch screen?

There are two types of applications to consider here : native applications and web-based applications.
The Surface Pro is going to support both of these.
to be available and accessible through Windows 8 devices and devices that support the Windows Store.
Web-Based Applications (ie .NET)
Web-based Applications such as those built and designed to run on the web, such as Web Forms and MVC applications are going to run just fine on a Surface just as they would on any browser. The beauty of builting web application is that as long as the device
has a browser, the website or application will be accessible and should work just as if you were viewing it on a desktop machine.
The touchscreen and other features are input devices that are integrated into the Surface and it is roughtly the equivalent of using a mouse within a desktop environment, so there shouldn't really involve any additional work on your part (unless your
require some complex multi-touch functionality).

Most of the events will work, except the events like mouse double click etc. You might as well have to write the events for touch functions if you want to fire any events for touch events. For an example, there will be no onmousedown event etc. As long as
