Patrik, I like you new logo. I subscribe to that.
I don't have SSD but neither do I want to clutter my system with junk.
I don't know whether clocks bring .dlls. Maybe not. Those are only simple little programs. But any substantial program will definitely drag along a bunch of .dlls.
Here is some data on the latest developments of the apps store.
Windows 8 app releases grind to a near-complete halt - Windows 8, apps, Microsoft, Windows, Windows RT, software, operating systems, HP, Blackberry, Palm - ARN
You can certainly count me in as one of the curious ones.Microsoft has killed its darlings (and annoyed dedicated desktop users) in the company's quest for a slice of the burgeoning mobile pie. Billions have been spent to blanket the world in flashy ads. The Start button itself--the very icon of Windows as we know it!--was sacrificed upon the touchscreen altar. And still everyday users avoid Windows tablets like the plague. Who can blame them? Interface gripes aside, there simply aren't many worthwhile Windows 8 apps available, and hope for software salvation is dwindling as the number of new app submissions declines day-in and day-out.
On February 4, Windows CMO/CFO Tami Reller said that more than 100 million apps have been downloaded since the Windows Store's launch, with user visits growing in the double digits each and every week. The smart money is on most of those coming from PC users. The curiosity is there. The apps are not.
Is there a pattern here?
There was a small rush from a modest number of devs to post up their apps.....then it trailed off
There was a small rush from a modest number of geeky types to get the upgrade...then it trailed off
There was a small rush from a modest number of buyers for the RT tablet...then it trailed off
Will Pro tablet suffer the same fate? Time will tell.
Interesting so few were available - that will extend the belief there is continuing demand.
