Got Windows 8 last week and love it after saying for so long that i would not buy it but after looking at the App store could it grow in time to as big as Android?

Shame that there is not the Real BBC News App but am pleased so far with all the Apps that Windows 8 have.

I think it will grow considerably in near future. Ms has just released help for programmers for Apps and future windows will relay on Apps more and more with "unified" OS that will allow same Apps to work same on different devices. Those are only plans for now. When in next iteration of Windows comes and maybe even before, plans are for Apps to be able to have resizable windows and true multitasking, only than we'll see some really useful Apps from the store and even independent ones. To tell you frankly I didn't find any really useful App yet, at least as not as good as tons of free desktop programs of same genres.
