I read a comment on youtube that said that if BING was a actual man, he would be sitting alone in his office doing nothing while playing with his Windows Phone.

How about they add "ability to install for people who have an SSD sys volume and a separate program drive"?

windows 8 is such a POS.

Even operating systems are entering the"free to play" era. I expect micro-transactions to occur! You want Windows Media Player with that? $1.99. Increase OneDrive storage to 10GB? $4.99/year. Windows Defender? Start Menu?

That is a valid concern, but unlikely unless they block you from installing all the better, and free, programs out there.

Windows Media Player? : MPC(FFDshow) or VLC
Windows Defender : Any other anti virus to your liking
OneDrive : Tons of good options with cheaper costs.

The only place you will see purchase options in the Windows Store, but besides that, no it won't be micro transactions.

Well VLC is now metro and it's free so they can't charge more then the competition.

Firefox stared on a Metro version but dropped it. The problem in metro is you set the default and click and it runs. So you would have to set FF as the default and click to use it. Instead Firefox released a desktop version with touch capabilites.

I doubt that John!

If it happens or is even tried it will be the beginning of the end for M$. If it already hasn't started.

Thanks John. Another incredibly enlightening comment from you.

It's a gift that I was given. You have to admit, I bet the idea of associating MMOs and OS never occurred to you.

so endlessly mining customer's data is ethically more acceptable?

Here's to wondering how gimped it will be. Metro only, anyone?

What next? This sounds like Microsoft has hired the same outfit that did the obama care start up.

Try to stay on topic if you can. It's really not difficult. I promise.

so it's an OEM only version? Like, can't I go and download it for my W7 computer?
