But they decided they wanted to force people to their store because they wanted a bigger iTunes than iTunes. I hope it bites.

...which is really stupid in the sense that they don't have anywhere near the products to offer in the Windows 8 store that iTunes or Google Play do.  Just look at the apps available to handle the WiFi options now available on most new cameras - they're virtually all iPad/Android.  I've yet to see one available for Windows 8.

Chicken and egg problem, that's what they're trying to overcome by forcing folks to Metro.   If they can get enough Metro users then they'll be able to hold them out as a carrot to developers.   Right now, they can just take the number of Windows 8 licenses and claim they're all Metro users (which of course they aren't...)
