    W8 could be better by REMOVING the desktop APP

    If M$ will ditch the desktop in future they might as well ditch legacy win32 api too. Forcing developers to develop windows store apps only and either distibute apps in store or sideloading. And rewrite the rest of the OS making it fully "metro" or whatever they call it now lol. That been said...
