Windows And thus, Microsoft bites itself in its behind with Metro. As you all surely know by now, the Metro environment in Windows 8, and its accompanying applications, need to follow a relatively strict set of rules and regulations, much like, say, applications on iOS. For one type of application, Metro has already proven to be too restrictive and limited: web browsers. Microsoft has had to define a separate application class [.docx] - aside from Metro and desktop applications - just to make third party web browsers possible for Windows 8.

I always wondered why iOS isn't held to same scrutiny as windows when restrictions on that platform are much more severe.

Well, now Microsoft is making Windows just as limited as iOS, at least on ARM. And who knows when the x86 version follows and Apple scraps Mac OS? So the whole world is going to hell, basically.
