Notch, among other game devs, has been pretty outspoken about how horrible Windows 8 is going to be, and that Microsoft is closing the platform down (i.e, forcing software to be verified through the "Microsoft Store").
What are everyone's thoughts on this? Why is Microsoft doing this? Will there be ways around it? Will it be best to simply not upgrade to Windows 8?
Discuss! Invite people! Branch off! Go nuts with this; this is a topic I think is really interesting and important right now.
Windows 8 launches at the end of this month. What are we going to do about it?
