The only reason anyone uses Windows is to run Windows apps. If I want tablet stuff, Android does it better. They've taken a Windows OS, removed the ability to run Windows programs, and tried to force everyone to get stuff from their store so that they can get a cut and so that they can control what is allowed to be in said store. Why on Earth would I want to encourage that? If they let me side load, that would be one thing and I could simply opt out of the store, but you can't. On top of that, they barely have shit in that store anyway. So now I'm getting a "Windows" tablet that can't do shit because no one develops for RT. Everyone develops for Android and iOS. If they TRULY wanted to move the platform forward, they would allow side loading and they would continue compatibility with Win32.
If I can't install programs the way I always have (without any input from Microsoft), then they can take their OS and shove it up their asses.
