Revised Windows Store Policy Allows PEGI-18 Games

Microsoft has revised the policy of the Windows Store, reports Gizmodo, backtracking on plans to exclude games rated PEGI-18 from being listed there. There will be a delay, however, as while the Windows 8 store launches today, the PEGI 18 games most likely won't be showing up there until December. Thanks Gamasutra.

Dear Microsoft,

I loved Windows 98, XP, and I love Win7. Every other OS between them, not so much.

If you want me to buy Win8, you will have to either make it easy for me to boot DIRECTLY to the usual desktop, or you will have to give away free 27" touch screens with Win8.

I read that all your hopes are on Win8, that your future depends on it. This makes me shudder. A free touchscreen might make Win8 more attractive to me.

Thank you,
Me, Myself, and I

That's pretty funny - can't get my head around that as a 'make or break' requirement but if you really want to do that it's already possible at no cost (other than a little legwork on your part). Personally i stuck my desktop tile top left and then hitting return shows my desktop right away (and tbh I find it quite nice to see the weather, news updates and how many mails i've got before i even open an app).

Other than that the desktop proper is much improved and the OS as a whole is markedly quicker. 4 months in and i'm not going back - despite the rough edges in MUI land.
