    GDI+ in a Windows 8 C# Metro Application – Experimenting for Fun

    It’s been about two months since Windows 8 Consumer Preview is out and we, at Telerik, have been enjoying the new framework and all the features it offers. One of the aspects we've been exploring is the immediate mode rendering and what options the new runtime offers.
