Free Windows, crazy AIs, and a Start Menu.

Don't cram live tiles into a Start Menu, let users place them on the desktop la the gadgets of old, or their non-live brethren the icon.

Is the free version going to come with the rumored forced integration of Bing ? if not how are they going to differentiate a sub 9" license from the others.

And i thought all Modern apps sold in the Windows Store needed Microsoft's approval, not that you would know they vet any apps with the amount of scam apps available in the Store.

I don't understand, what's supposed to be wrong with Bing integration?

Yup, although expect that to be hacked in a New York minute.

All app stores have the same problem. Even Apple's tightly curated one.

The Android app store is the worst --five of the top six Trojans are hidden in Android apps. iOS had its first bit of malware in 2012.

I mean, stands to reason, doesn't it? Nobody develops apps for Windows Phone and Windows Metro because it has such a small market share. Why should hackers then focus all their malware efforts on it?

I think it's safe to say all the apps stores suffer from scam apps, it just seems from what i have read Google and Apple seem to be doing a better job of managing the problem.

But have they cleaned things up in the last 8 months ?

One thing i have gathered from the problem of scam apps on all stores (Microsoft, Apple, Google) is that one of the main reasons they give for locking users and dev's into using a store is BS.
The so called vetting of apps to ensure quality and keep people safe from bogus software isn't working, letting someone else make choices on what is safe and what isn't for you is never a good idea IMHO.

I totally agree. It gives the muggles a false sense of security though (which is actually more dangerous, I know, but commercially a plus), and at least the install process is simpler.
