    I know, right?? These figures mean nothing. I can't count the number of times I have downloaded an app to try and deleted because I have no use for it when I had an iPhone. Not to mention the amount of times downloading when restoring after restore, after restore, especially when I was jailbreaking.

    And, a dose of reality.... 900,000 apps seems pretty irrelevant when the average user has only 20-100 useable installed.

    The actual total number doesn't matter, it's the quality and variety of apps that are available, that's what's completely lacking when it comes to Windows 8. The ratio of crap to good is far higher with Windows 8.

    Actually, they said 50 billion UNIQUE first time downloads.
