That wasn't, isn't and never will be the goal. They want to keep PC gamers at bay, at best.
To remind everybody of their history of promises regarding PC gaming to keep up the hope, read this list of links

The cherry on the top is that it runs borderless, the textures are kind blurry, and there´s no multi-gpu support. 4K runs at 20 FPS with a single 980 TI just for the record.
Windows Store is really, really bad. Way worse than GFWL. No mods, forced languages, no custom configs, no exclusive fullscreen, no uncapped framerate, no multi-gpu. MS really doesn´t have a clue!
Regarding the language problem, I've always found it strange how tech companies of all should know that in a globalised world there are people working and living abroad who want / need to read in their language or who simply prefer to read in the native language of the program, which is often English. Not giving people this option is like having a software company beam you programs from the 18th century. It's even more pathetic in this case considering that Microsoft has provided language packs for Windows 7 Ultimate since 2009.

FYI, there is a bunch of games on Steam that don't have any DRM, including Half-Life 2 and the Episodes (they once had, of course). Here is the list
