Don't stop me! Why Microsoft's inevitable browser irrelevance isn't

Windows is for legacy win32 applications, and their "metro universal platform app store, or whatever" is a technological dead-end.

So by that rather poorly thought out argument, the Apple App Store and Google Play stores are also technological dead ends. That must be why nobody cares about apps any more...

Actually, I think you'll find single-function apps are slowly going the way of the dodo to be replaced by the super-app that does everything in a horrendous AOL/Compuserve mashup stylie.
