So Windows 8 will close an app for if your not using it. Big whoopie do. How will it know whether you actually want an application left open or not? I keep hundreds of tabs open in my web browser, a PDF reader, NotePad++, Steam, SeaGate tools, etc. They run 24/7. They don't need to be closed. I DO NOT like this idea at all. Sounds like Microsoft wants to make every decision for the user now days...from the cradle to the ****ng grave.
For a well written app, an end user won't notice that the app has been terminated at all. Navigating or going back to the app will give the appearance that it was always running.

Furthermore, I actually enjoy getting popup windows from Adobe and other software. Forced updates are a bad idea. If the software changes in such a way that people don't WANT to upgrade to the latest version, what then?
There are no forced updates. Just a consistent way for the user to recieve all app updates.

Another bullshit so-called "PRO" of the Metro App store. All you are saying here is that it's good for small developers who aren't well known. Yet there are TONS of websites on the internet where small developers can promote their software. CNET is a great place for developers to have their software showcased.
Average users never discover those places. Developers want exposure to non-techy folks to grow their market.

An unresponsive application isn't a reason to contemplate suicide. Start the task manager and kill the application.
Average users don't know about task manager. A poorly designed unresponsive program is a not a good end user experience.
