How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Create a proper unit test suite for Windows HTML5/JS apps.

As much as I want to use WinJS to build apps for Windows and Windows Phone, the complete lack of unit testing tools has turned me off of the platform. Right now it's impossible to automate unit testing a WinJS application. Instead we have to either create a second WinJS project and link all of our source files to it, or add a special page into the app itself that's dedicated to unit testing.

These options are far from ideal. I propose you add a proper unit test suite for the WinJS platform that can be automated and ideally run from common JavaScript tools like Grunt.
