As fseal correctly pints out, people are accustomed to being allowed to purchase third party software for their desktops. But that was the blog author's point. Mobile phones have always had limitations on what you can install; desktops have more choices. The author argues that if MS actually goes through with this, it will hurt sales of Windows 8.

I'm with jimbo re metal detectors - had to a have a giggle cos the girls at work are just like that every spare second they have - usually showing those awful party, weddings, and grandkid photos off.

Don't get me wrong as my grandson Nick is the only star in the sky but the endless and monotonous way they carry on is driving me mad!

Surely there has to more to life than these 'toys"

ICit2lol, I agree that after you've seen several thousand wedding photos, you've seen them all. But my sister's are an exception.

Our older sister was furious because she was not the center of attention, so every photo with her in it has her glaring in rage at the camera. They are DEFINITELY the funniest wedding pictures I have ever seen.

I do not care about fluff or features...I care about performance. MS got this one will be hard to get me to move on.

Our first computer had Windows 3.11. We couldn't believe the fantastic technology. You could actually play Solitaire by dragging the cards.

The computer industry is going in a wacky direction, infact it appears to be going backwards. You don't even need a power horse PC to do what you use to need 8 or more years ago. Dual Core CPU are still powerful to do most tasks today. Intel and AMD are turning out chips that don't seem to get the interest as they use to in the past, I'll give credit to AMD as they chips are cheaper but how effective their 8-cores chips are for me personally doesn't make me want to jump hurdles. Intel price point is so high that they have literally decided to ignore most of their chips lines and focus on Atom and lower end CPU market where they can sell more and put the expensive chips on a shelf where the spiders rest.

Desktops are not dead, but are dying at a slow rate. Internet on your mobile phone is gaining over desktop use. Most people are using their mobile phones for internet rather then coming home and sitting at a PC for hours. You can check your email etc where ever you are with a mobile phone, eating, on public transportation etc is this a good thing, that is a different subject.

Microsoft wants to reinvent them self they want to go away from the "Start" button with a entire new interface aka "Metro" look. Is this a U.I that speaks down to you many are saying yes. Many say the MacOS speaks down to you the only OS that still doesn't completely speak "down" is Linux although Android does.

Cloud computing was hyped as this amazing new thing -- turns out it's just a cash grab for the companies to run software on the net and charge you monthly fees to keep the software running, even if installed locally, but they are pushing cloud computing on us hard to accept it.

As I said in the beginning the computer industry is going a direction that is backwards. It is not progress thinking anymore, and it is a warning light. If their is no more progress thinking and it's becoming strictly about money which it is, then where is computers heading. There will always be programmers, they need them but your average PC user may in 5 years from now probably will have a mobile phone and a tablet.

My first days with a Windows 8 phone
I became adventurous and spent $79 for a Windows 8 phone. I said to myself what can you lose, I spent similar money for a USB stick. But what I can gain is some experience - as if I needed that at my age, LOL. My first impressions are mixed. There are really 3 parts to it. 1. The Nokia part...
