    Editorial: Microsoft's left hand ... please meet right hand

    You know, maybe Gabe Newell and Notch have a point after all. Both of them have been highly critical of Windows 8 and its "Modern" UI over the past few months. Notch, the creator of Minecraft, doesn't want to certify the game to be sold on the Windows Store because he feels that Microsoft is trying to turn the PC into a closed system.

    I thought all of this talk was just a bit paranoid. After all, the desktop is still there in Windows 8. That means any game, and any app, made for previous versions of Windows can still work in Windows 8.

    Now, I'm not so sure that Microsoft really knows what it is doing when it comes to the Windows Store. That's due to the reveal that Microsoft will ban games in Europe rated higher that PEGI 16 from being sold in the Windows Store.

    It's so early on and so much speculation at this point, that it's probably not even worth getting worked up and bothered over things like this yet.
