Microsoft 'clarifies' Xbox One Windows app compatibility

Not everything will be compatible.

Hasn't it been said the Xbox One will run three distinct operating systems ?
One for the games, the kernel of Windows 8 to power the apps, and another always-on to connect the two.

It is not in Microsoft's interest to allow key PC applications to run on Xbox. If the Xbox could (for example) run Word and Internet Explorer there would be less need for households to maintain a traditional PC, leading to lower Windows license sales.

Well we know from pictures of the Xbox One's dashboard that it will run Skype and IE.
Maybe running Word would be a stretch without a keyboard

The Xbox One is the most PC-like console to come out of Microsoft's hardware division yet
*Ahem.*

The original Xbox uses a Pentium 3 processor. With a little modification, it can run Windows 98.

So..... :?

I know. I've got one sat to my right as I type this. Which is why I said 'the most,' not 'the first.' The Xbox One is considerably more PC-like than the original Xbox: its processor instruction set is less customised, its graphics hardware more traditional, its USB ports are actually USB ports, and its operating system - from what has been revealed so far - is more heavily Windows-based and has PC-like features, including applications such as Internet Explorer and Skype, that did not appear on the original.
