I also believe Microsoft is beginning a play for an iOS-style walled garden. However, and unfortunately, I also believe most people won't really notice.
And, for those who don't agree, here's the really boiled down version of why I think Alex is right: there are now two Windows APIs. Over time, as they reach a new status quo, Microsoft will notice one will is less profitable than the other. That one will be deprecated, then dropped. Anyone want to guess which (Win32 or WinRT)?

As far as Apps, we are moving into browser apps that neither Windows nor Apple will be able to control. I don't think WindowsRT will ever get off the ground, but it may be wishful thinking on my part. I think they will be running a distant third on tablets and will be losing more ground on desktop. Not too many will go to Linux, but some will, enough to make shareholders very nervous.
