>> Do you think before you write?
Sure I do.
The question is: are YOU capable of thinking more deeply than your superficial selfish single interest?
>> you cannot write software for the upcoming Windows 8 RT. Why? Because MSFT has decided that you can’t.
So it’s your constitutional right to be able to force your code on any OS you choose? Hmmm... must be another one of those “penumbras”; I don’t remember seeing it directly.
>> Chrome is Google’s OS
No sh!t. Really?
>> and they also provide tutorials and access to the extensions you need to write code for their OS.
You keep *saying* this like it *means* something. Like there aren’t tutorials for Microsoft APIs? Enough of them to choke a hippo? Do you think before you write? Seriously.
OK, now I understand.... you don't know what you are talking about.
Some Windows apps rely on the powerful Win32 APIs Microsoft has built for programmers, apps like Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Word. They wont run on ARM-powered Windows devices (basically any Windows tablets).
Those APIs are necessary for modern browsers, argued Mozilla spokesman Asa Dotzler -- and only Internet Explorer will have access.
Without that access, no other browser has a prayer of being competitive with IE, he wrote.
MSFT is withholding the vital documentation on WinRT from developers. This is what they did previously in United States v. Microsoft - and they lost. This doesn't just affect people writing Browsers, it can and will affect many 3rd party developers. Please read and inform yourself - your ignorance is painful to endure.
