    Well, I have a Windows tablet, so some of my favourite apps might not be so great on a desktop.

    Thanks,

    So I'm guessing these apps are really small in size and I need not to worry about my main 128GB SSD getting filled up?

    Would you happen to know anything about Xbox for Windows 8 games and whether or not they can be installed on a secondary hard drive or partition?

    Hopefully they be moved or installed onto a secondary hard drive/partition like Steam games because Xbox for Windows 8 games can potentially really fill up my 128GB SSD main.

    It is pretty bleak at the moment. Hopefully, they can get some developers on board.

    Right now I am using Netflix, Pin Steam, Hulu, Kindle and MS Solitaire... that's about it, and I could probably survive without any of them.

    I started using Notepad Classic which is a great Windows Store version of Notepad.

    The author is extremely responsive to your needs. I wrote him complaining that there was no way to create a text file without a file extension, and he responded and added the feature!

The apps don't recognize that I have a wireless internet connection. When I go to desktop, I can use the internet. Also, printer does not work in apps at all, and only sometimes from desktop (also connected by wireless).
