More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney

Epic CEO Tim Sweeney is continuing his crusade to warn gamers about what he feels are the potential dangers and pitfalls of Microsoft's Windows 10 strategy, saying he believes the company will continue to patch the operating system to impede the usefulness of third-party services such as Steam. His latest thoughts on the topic are revealed in an interview in Edge Magazine, and PC Gamer has relevant quotes and excerpts. "The risk here is that, if Microsoft convinces everybody to use UWP, then they phase out Win32 apps," Sweeney explains. "If they can succeed in doing that then it’s a small leap to forcing all apps and games to be distributed through the Windows Store. Once we reach that point, the PC has become a closed platform. It won’t be that one day they flip a switch that will break your Steam library – what they’re trying to do is a series of sneaky manoeuvres. They make it more and more inconvenient to use the old apps, and, simultaneously, they try to become the only source for the new ones." He goes on to postulate that this will be a gradual but intentional process on Microsoft's part, presuming the plan doesn't go all Zune on them:
"Slowly, over the next five years, they will force-patch Windows 10 to make Steam progressively worse and more broken. They’ll never completely break it, but will continue to break it until, in five years, people are so fed up that Steam is buggy that the Windows Store seems like an ideal alternative. That’s exactly what they did to their previous competitors in other areas. Now they’re doing it to Steam. It’s only just starting to become visible. Microsoft might not be competent enough to succeed with their plan, but they’re certainly trying."
