    Android is not LOCKED to store only. You can download APK files from anywhere, save it to the storage card and manually install it to Android device. Play Store is just another source. Android is an open source device. It's the easiest device to hack. It's not secured.
    okey , I want windows to be like Android (also Mac OS do the same thing)
    locked to the store by default but you can go to the settings and check a box that enable installing apps from anywhere

    You probably won't get Malware, viruses or other threats from the Store; however, installing a program on your computer is probably one of the least likely sources of said problems. Just surfing the Internet and visiting the wrong site is more than likely to give you a dose of the afore mentioned problem stuff.
    I think you didn't visit the most populor windows apps download websites , all of them bundle adware (aka malware) with every program .

    also other malware and virus also are exe programs (or .msi or whatever) that will not work on normal users if windows locked to the store by default (like mac os and android)

    you don't get how much safer windows will be for normal uses if it was like OSX and Android locked to the store by default (and power users will still have the ability to install whatever they want just like Android)

    It would be a solution to me if I needed it!

    Edit: Windows is already as safe and stable as anything else out there. BTW, "Speak for yourself, John!" This "we" ain't joinin' in!
    you too speak for you self (notice that you used "we" as if you talk for all the windows users)

    and BTW windows is not as safe and stable as ipad ios , on ipad you can't get fooled and install viruses or malware that looked like a program that you tried to download , I'm a windows power user that know how to protect his PC but the other 1 billion users don't know how and get fooled all the time , so why not should windows be safe for them ?

    a prisoner to a clean store that all it'a app is reviewed and safe is a lot better than being fooled by adware and malware everyday and in the end having a slow PC that been hijacked by malware.
    it's 2 choices :-
    1-having an OS where the normal user need to know too much to be able to protect his PC and maintain it (and being ideal for advanced uses)
    2-having an OS where advanced users need to toggle something in the setting and get all they want (and being safe for normal users)

    what is the more logical choice ?
    Oh, Bull CaCa! You make it seem like all Windows users are so ignorant they don't have sense enough to come in out of the rain!

    My clients are mostly senior citizens and I can tell you that they know so much more than they're given credit for . . . I don't get calls to clean their PCs up; I get calls for hardware upgrades and issues. I can guarantee that if I ever suggested to them that their PCs should be locked down "for their own protection" that would be the last time I'd be called for support.

    My choice and my clients' choice is freedom from being dictated to as to what we are allowed to use on our own equipment!

    I will install programs and apps from the Store if they're something I need. However, I will not be locked into a single source for programs I use on my PC. It is my computer and I will not allow it to be controlled by anyone other than myself.

    Although I'm solidly a Windows user, the quickest way to send me toward Linux is to tell me I can use only programs from the Store. That I won't tolerate.
    No body is, and especially Microsoft. . .silly way to loose business. . .

    Android is not and never has been "locked to the store". So, if Windows is like Android, it should not be locked to the Store.

    How ? by default you can only install apps from play store.
    if you want install from other places then you need to go to the settings and enable that

    I think you don't know what you're talking about when you decide where I've visited. I know enough to unclick unwanted apps; however, I don't use those apps simply because they attempt to install unwanted stuff. I know enough to go to the official site when downloading a particular program I want or need.

    How many ways can you say we're so stupid we need to be protected from ourselves? Personally, I don't need that kind of help and neither do my clients.

    you didn't answer what choice would you make , what is the best for the more than 1 billion windows users

    1-having an OS where the normal user need to know too much to be able to protect his PC and maintain it (and being ideal for advanced uses)
    2-having an OS where advanced users need to toggle something in the setting and get all they want (and being safe for normal users)
