Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y "A war between two of the major conglomerates will always have casualties, and unfortunately for us, this time we are the casualties. We aren't yet at a state where it is impossible to use Google services on Microsoft platforms, but we are moving towards a stricter ecosystem world where we might see Googlers/Gmail users on one side and Bingers/Outlook users on the other. We can only hope for the sake of technologies future and for the sake of innovation that the two companies can learn to work together in an ever expanding world of data." We can hope so, but we're talking large companies, and large companies do not care about users. Never have, never will.

I think the Windows Store does have a discovery problem of sorts. Some people just don't know that its there. When they have discovered it, I've found the people I've observed actually go ahead and download a few apps (mostly games which they're surprised exist on iOS and the Windows Store)

I think this is different on tablet form factors where people are more used to looking for app stores. I do get a higher proportion of downloads on my apps from tablets.
