    There is a HUGE market for the Dev's. W10 is the future of computing and all windows based machines will be moving to it. Therefore that's MILLIONS of users to buy that app. Its no reason for them not to quickly develop it. The market is there....MS just has to let islandwood loose to the devs.

    Listening to hear the whooshing sound of developers rushing to develop Universal APPs .... crickets.

    Just imagine if they had invested 8 Billion dollars in APPs instead of wasting it on Nokia or any of the other major money pits Ballmer threw money at. Even today that investment would be something productive vs round after round of throwing mobile hardware into the gristmill like throwing seeds on a stone they wont grow.

    The thing is MICROSOFT DOES NOT PAY FOR APPS. Just as apple DOES NOT PAY for apps. Microsoft has given dev's a way to port their already created apps for IOS to Win10. Its not released to them yet, but its being tested as we speak. So, when MS releases islandwood to the devs...you will see LOTS of apps come to W10.

    We'll see, but there's nothing preventing the devs especially traditional Windows devs from jumping onboard except the desire to do it. Yet nobody is doing it.

    "The thing is MICROSOFT DOES NOT PAY FOR APPS. Just as apple DOES NOT PAY for apps."​
    Total historical in the box thinking. Nobody ever overcame a huge deficit that way. you win against all odds by changing the game, doing something nobody has ever done before like buying Apps and giving away FREE hardware. The money to be made is in the services on a vibrant and robust platform. Currently they are going after this model on iOS and Android... and oh yeah, Linux and Cloud. They invested how much on Azure?
    Microsoft is spending more than $10B per year on Azure data centers (UPDATE)
