I am having a really hard time figuring this out. I am in the process of buying a new gaming computer, and I am trying to decide if I should jump to windows 8.
What I can't figure out is this: Is windows 8 a closed platform? Which is to say, can you install non-certified applications? I can't quite google a decisive answer it seems.
I have read that you can't install non-certified applications on the os, is this correct? What exactly are the limitations?
Ok, it seems I was confusing windows RT for tablets and windows 8 for pcs. That explains my confusion when I was reading up on this. I did not catch that they are seperate entities.
