    Well when you take away the built in games from 7 and older and you force them into the APP what did they expect.

    Seems Microsoft has a fixation with numbers. They are always announcing 'milestone' numbers, Microsoft hits xyz number of visitors blah, blah, blah. Honestly, I am becoming skeptical of all this tooting of their own horns. How would anyone be able to disprove it? and does it even really matter?

    No different than any other big tech company though? They all tout the numbers. Not saying its right or wrong, just that they aren't the only ones doing it.

    You can copy and paste literally the old games from XP to Windows 10 and they work. I've done it. Don't fall for any micro transaction Micro$haft scam.
