It is better to go out to store and buy software and install it (same for games) then buy online over Steam for example. Apple makes a metrick **** ton a money cause there are too many stupid people to use those services. And do you know why is better to manually download, install, updatea and register software. It is because i am in a ****ing control, not them.

Implying you can buy physical copies of all software...

You're missing the point, bud. :rolleyes:

* in your opinion.

I think its better to have everything at the click of a button, as well as a centralised location to install updates. This makes me stupid does it?

PLUS, i am more inclined to support the developers now. I'll be honest, i'm not the best at buying software, but ever since the osx app store came about i've been buying more and more, infact i've bought more than i ever have in my life of using computers. The apps are usually cheaper than what you would pay in the shop, its quick and it's easy. believe it or not, i'm still in control.

Win for apple/steam/ms., win for me, and win for the developer.

Ugly mockup, and I'd assume it would use the metro UI style?

Oh, you should have just said you're paranoid and don't like progress in your first post. Would have saved me some time.

Hey, if you like collecting boxes and discs, and limiting yourself to the tiny percentage of software that is available in retail stores, you go for it.

I call fake!

Yeah. No way this is real. The usability is all over the place and it doesn't even fit in with the look of anything else Microsoft is doing... The tabs at the top make my eyes hurt they're so archaic...

Well, then it is only me who kinda liked the mockup idea. Of course I don't want the Windows <Next> app store to look like WMP but it was "cute" to see a mockup. Good job. (Y)

There is so many things wrong with this image, it just screams fake.

a few things:
Microsoft doesn't call an operating system "OS"
"Leaked" screens wouldn't showcase Opera.
The menus are ugly and icons are overkill
The top header is so empty in the second image, with the home button.

That application is written by this company: http://web.appmarts.com/

The website is really slow and is in Chinese.
