22. Re: Croteam on Windows 8 Issues Nov 17, 2012, 16:18 Soulburner
I love Windows 8. It's fast, I like the desktop UI changes, I even like the Modern UI apps and the start screen. I use it on a desktop PC and see no issues with it being designed for touch.

But I agree with these comments from Croteam, Gabe Newell, etc. Closing the platform is a really bad idea. I hope more developers voice their concern - maybe Microsoft will change its mind? I don't think that's likely, but if game developers avoided the Windows App Store and "Metro" apps, it would make Microsoft execs at least think about it.

Since I'm a satisfied Windows 8 user, I hope all the criticism of the app store doesn't impact the games I run on the desktop. It would really suck if a game would run flawlessly on Windows 7, but would crash or otherwise work badly on Windows 8, just because developers don't agree with the Modern UI app store philosophy.
