The //build/ conference gave Microsoft the opportunity to re-engage with the developer community and share some of the things we have to look forward to in Windows 8.1, of which a preview is available now.
Phone environments grow over the next several months.

Do you have to pay $2 for a gawd darn flashlight app which can found everywhere in the PLAY STORE for free?

Dude this is windows... freaking best os in the world... paying $ for free apps found else where is normal here... and there is no guarantee it will work and there is no return policy... you know MS is miles ahead of everyone else... right wp fans?

I've never paid for an app on WP or Windows, and never had an issue working with the developer/publisher on the minor glitches that sometimes arise. You're right that Windows seems to be the best though IMHO ;)

Trolls dont really use their brains. They just hate blindly. They think they can force their own opinions on others. And there is no such thing as using flash torch light on windows 8; it;s a desktop/tablet OS. This article clearly stated windows 8. Windows 8 has >100,000 apps; windows phone has >150,000 apps. They are separate.

I agree. People complaining about the lack of apps don't realize that by the time Windows and WP are unified, there would be around ~300,000 apps, maybe even more. Unless I'm wrong, that's a brilliant strategy by MS; starting off separately is really paying off and it shows. xD

Are there apps in the marketplace that work in the proper desktop? Or all apps in the marketplace just work on the metro ui?

I'm yet to understand why it is called common sense, what an irony? I've being in contact with people, I've interacted with different classes of people and I can tell you for sure that common sense is not common, if anything, it's very rare.
