    I have an off topic question. If game titles (or any app for that matter) are purchased in Windows 8 store, will they be transferable to future Windows OS's? Or will you be forced to purchase the apps again?

    How will the app store work when upgrading to the next latest and greatest?

    Yes they will. Store purchases are recorded under your Microsoft account. Signing in with it on, say, Windows 9 will sync previously purchased (or free) apps and games.

    I figured that Microsoft wasn't as stupid (or evil) as some people thought it was.
