I hope they programmed cortana to give some wiseass answer when I ask her if this cave is a natural formation... :laugh:

I was hearing that as well for a while but it seems to have stopped.

All this cross-platform talk, and interoperability... Looks like those that want Microsoft to cut out the Metro "crap" UI, are out of luck. I foresee a death knell in Win32 applications.

 

It looks good. Everything is coming together nicely. Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 9, and XBox One all look like they'll be winners.

It's intended for old enterprise apps, but even some Microsoft employees demoed sideloading to be possible along with sideloading tools, but that was taken down.
