Also, I don't want you to speak for me either, as I am sure you feel the same way. . .I think I would have to side with Indianatone (in most parts) on this.Please speak only for yourself. I find it funny that there are folks out there who just feel that they need to speak for me. . .don't. . .I think I said it as clear as I could. No one wants the store or the apps. Those that did already have them in their Apple walled garden or Googles chocolate land. Windows users are plain not interested, those that were bought the devices already and it is a passing fad as sales are declining.What. . .Basically as far as I am concerned Microsoft is too late. Android and Apple have the phone markets sown up. I am also not the only one who thinks this was as sales figures sort of prove my point. Why on Earth does Microsoft just go back to basics and produce a Great OS and productivity software (Office, Map Point, Encarta) and Games and forget about this market. Tablets and fondleslabs are already in decline as they were a passing fad.
Here again is another obstacle that Microsoft has produced for itself. Currently, people have to develop apps for windows 8, 8.1 and now Windows 10, all with different stores. In addition (if not mistaken) Microsoft wants developers to make sure the new apps are portable to the Windows Phone, desktop and tablets. That is a lot of burden to place on developers.
I just can't see a lot of developers ready to jump on that band wagon, unless they are garbage app producers whose apps really don't do anything. IMHO
