Microsoft has nothing been idle on IoT
There shall be many great improvement in Windows 10 for IoT, however Microsoft has not been sitting idle on other fronts. I never thought I would say this but I have been quite impressed with how they are nurturing their developer community! Competitor should take note.

Thus far they have conducted the following developer trainings:

1. Accelerating PHP Development in the Cloud with Z-Ray for Azure
2. Create your end to end IoT solution using Azure Stream Analytics
3. Building Predictive Maintenance Solutions with Azure ML
4. Energy Forecasting in Smart Grids using Azure Machine Learning
5. Cortana Analytics Suite: Transform data into intelligent action
6. Introduction to Azure Data Factory - August 4th

Microsoft is helping to lay the foundation for practical business use cases and has not jumped on the hype wagon.

Good Work!

Re: Microsoft has nothing been idle on IoT
Mixing Cortana in this IoT race might prove to be good since Cortana intends to be a full interactive AI supporting the windows 10, if it can do that then it can also do independent iot management.

Re: Microsoft has not been idle on IoT
For me, I prefer some variant of linux or another embedded OS but I think the point is if Microsoft is your development environment of choice, you will be able to use Windows 10 Core, without all of the bloatware to help rapidly develop your application.

For IoT devices the CLI is reported to be much improved. Personally I haven't tested any of this although it is good to know these capabilities and features are either available or soon will be. Generally speaking, it appears Microsoft has positioned Azure (at least in some capacity) as an IoT Cloud Operations Center.

The components are there, you just has to wire them up.
