Those are closed OS. They always have been. How is it hypocrisy when you dont want an open OS to become closed? I mean... Windows 8 certification? For a game? WTF??
With that logic everyone is a hypocrite who uses anything closed and doesnt like Windows 8 because it tries to go the same way.

Yep exactly. Windows 8 is a step down a path that many of you will not like. People keep pointing to other closed platforms, well how badly do you want Windows to turn into that? Microsoft has been an iron fisted dicator with Xbox Live, I really don't want to see them have complete platform control from top to bottom - distro, certification, etc. When they can take a cut and control everything, are people really gullible enough to believe they won't try their hardest to push the market in that direct? Corporate workers are a stop gap to this scenario, not a permanent obstacle. Has there been any choice involved with the adoption of Metro? That's their attitude, remember it.

I don't really like where the future is heading - shitty app management, cut down features and shitloads of negative space. It's a huge step backwards considering all of the progress made in the past twenty years. I'm not buying Windows 8 as a result. There is certainly room for innovation in the market but Microsoft didn't do that here, they played me-too yet again.

Yep, in Windows 8 you have a choice whether to use Metro apps or not, not sure that is much of a choice in the first place but whatever. You can do that in Windows 8. For now.
