Report: Microsoft to team-up developers for Windows Phone and Windows
This is not a merger of the two app stores. There is speculation that the Windows Store will combine with the Windows Phone Store at some point down the road. That rumor was confirmed months ago by Terry Myerson, the Microsoft executive VP in charge of the software firm's operating systems.
If this report turns out to be true, this would be a small first step toward the eventual merger of Windows and Windows Phone, something that has been rumored since the release of Windows Phone 8.

get rid of tiles. it is an inefficient way of displaying icons and taken up by colour background.

No way... Why go backwards with standard grid icons? I much prefer the look of WP to myspace.

tiles are polarizing. you love em or hate em.
16. ausnote2 (Posts: 84; Member since: 07 Dec 2012)
very true indeed. i think tile is utter crap and should revert back to windows 6.5 ui. unfortunately for ms i can't see it grow more than 15% even after 100 years. the sooner ms realise this ignoring all the fanboy the better.
for the fanboy of ms, one question is how long do you propose to give tiles the benefit of doubt. heading over 5 years now????

ummmm tiles are icons, adjustable icons, with adjustable live information.
A icon is a flipphone from the 90's, a tile is a smartphone of today, able to do so much more.
Sorry icons should have been gone with windows xp.

This is how they are pushing developers away... This should have happened a long time ago. How about free subscriptions for now until they have a decent user base? It will be less of a risk and it's a good time to fight back aggressive with their Lumia 525 while they have the chance with a better app store.

Windows for work and gaming, OS X for spare time and all sorts of editing.
