[Semi Accurate] Valve puts apps on Steam, Microsoft still lacks a Windows 8 strategy - Page 2

post #11 of 64
Closed operating system on PC? They must be out of their minds, if they don't think their market will be quickly eaten by Linux, or even Google.

Hi, Windows RT called. It said you're wrong.

^ He's entirely wrong. Windows RT does exactly what was in that quote.

IF you want to write an Windows RT program you NEED to use the Appstore to distribute it and you have to use their shoddy programming methods.

GrizzleBoy, as usual, is wrong.

LOL. Come on! Linux isn't a threat to anyone. rolleyes.gif

How can they say that MS lacks a strategy??? It seems pretty clear what their strategy is. You publish an app on the Marketplace and it's available across multiple devices/platforms.

This article and my reply is about Steam providing an alternative to the MS app store.

Bullcrap article?

The app store is optional for both devs AND consumers.

"forcing" people to re-code from the ground up?

No.

If you want to put an app on the app store it has to conform to certain standards.

Its literally that simple.

Good god why cant people stop with the "sky is falling" trash already?


Also, talking about Microsoft "DRM laden" store while thinking its "awesome" that apps will be on a DRM platform called Steam.

Where are all the sane people.
Its therefore obvious I was referring to non Windows RT systems.. You know, given that Steam is not going to be on Windows RT in the first place.

Also, nobody is forcing developers to make Windows RT apps.

Why don't we start crying that we have to use the android store on android devices while were at it rolleyes.gif

How do you know the DRM will be the same for software on Steam as with games?

It wasn't obvious you were disregarding Windows RT. Nor was the quote and article specifically mentioning (not not mentioning) Windows RT, either.

This article is not just about Steam.

No-one is forcing developers to write RT apps. Yeah? Ok, so Microsoft will just have to write ALL apps for Windows RT. If the $200 tablet picks up developers will eventually want to capitalise on that market. And since you can only use their store to distribute (get signed apps and use the signed API's) then yeah you're forced to use their methods.




Oh and LOL but you don't have to use Android's Google Play store for Android apps. You also don't have to use Google specific software to write programs for it since it's Java based and highly multi-platform and easily portable. You can use the SDK or you can use notepad, if you really like (I prefer Linux and Eclipse + Android plugins myself)

I figure I'll just stick with Win7 until 9 or something, no point in wasting money on another 'Vista'.
