Windows Why, would you look at this. All this time we were expecting Apple to be the first one to flip the switch and limit desktop users to Mac App Store applications and turn Mac OS X into a walled garden, but in fact, Microsoft will be the first to flip this switch. As it turns out, Metro applications can only be installed through the Windows Store - with sideloading only for enterprises and developers (this doesn't apply to legacy applications).

Funny how a NEC monitor, Ancient Dell Keyboard, BenQ HD Projector and Microsoft mouse all work fine on my Apple kit.

I don't have to faff around loading drivers either unlike Windows.

I'm not saying apple is perfect, far from it but I'd really like to know where you got the opinion that non apple devices won't work on Apple kit?

You wouldn't have to load drivers for those in Windows either. ;)

Well, my copy of Windows and the searching for drivers it does when I connect the keyboard would seem to disagree with you. YMMV.
