    but why should open source have a problem with the store as a download center for them ?
    and no no , I don't want to impose anything on you , from the start I said they should have an option in the settings to enable installing from any source for power users like you (like Android today)

    the fact that it's optional will mean 2 things :-
    1- windows by default will be very safe for normal uses (they will never get hit again with adware , malware or ransomware, just like the ipad)
    2- this will encourage developers to get their win32 and .net apps on the store ASAP
    First off you don't understand Open Source one bit.. having it in the store would mean that they would have to have multiple sources for Linux and OSx. And why should they have to port it to the store when the way it's distributed now just works.

    And finally, I don't want to use the store to get my software. Period.. you seem hung up on this my way only approach and I strongly disagree with this and I don't think others should have to tweak the settings to install things that they have for years.

    I think that there's a lot of misunderstanding about difference between "Open source" and freeware.

    I get open source , it's okey for them to make money (you were mistaken on this one) and it's okey for them to compile a version for the store from time to time , if they don't want it's okey they can do it the current way.

    and go read the first page , no one said you'll be forced to use the store , there should an option to enable apps from any source just like android and mac os .

    so checking a box in the settings is unacceptable.
    normal users getting adware , malware and ransomware all the time is okey , this is not logical.

    it should be that normal users by default can't get adware , malware and ransomware , and advanced users can check a box in the settings or toggle something if they trust that they can keep their PC safe from adware , malware and ransomware

    [QUOTE=Qushery;235278]again the point just over your head
    also it's very childish replay

    The point is not going over my head! You want windows to be like the Apple OS. Instead of forcing your ideas on me you can switch to Apple or any other OS you want.

    people can sell open source software , also can sell free software (free as in freedom) , freeware is the free of charge software.

    am I correct there ?

    Ok.. discussing an issue or disagreeing is one thing but you're borderline insulting a member here and that is against the rules.
