    <p>Hi, is there any chance you can look into Microsofts future plans on allowing installation of UWP-apps from third party sources?</p><p><br></p><p>A couple of years back Tim Sweeney attacked the UWP platform because he said it would lead to "lock-in", Microsoft responded by saying UWP is an open platform not tied to the Windows Store.&nbsp;But looking at Windows 10S and the rumors around Polaris, Windows Store seems to become the only source of apps/games in Windows' future.</p><p><br></p><p>Will Microsoft in the future allow side-loading of UWP-apps on their platforms that only support UWP/Store-apps similar to what Google does on Android?</p>

    <p>Now that SETS is a thing for Microsoft, will it ever come to other platforms? </p>

    <p>Do you actually hear from a few WDG engineers wanting to move to one version per year instead of per 6 months, or is it just the consensus of Microsoft centric journalists? Cause a lot of times when you, Paul, Foley, etc. Say the same thing, I felt it's usually employees trying to get their voice out in the world. </p>

    <p>we found that the pictures taken with front camera were really higher quality than anticipated good details, vivid shading and minimal noise.</p><p><a href="; target="_blank" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">watch movies online</a>, <a href="; target="_blank" style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">watch full movies online</a></p>

    <p>This is a question about the Microsoft Store app on Windows 10.</p><p><br></p><p>With Microsoft hosting things other than apps &amp; games in the store (such as MS Service Subscriptions, Microsoft Edge Extensions, Windows Themes, Hardware products etc.), why doesn't Microsoft make these categories top level categories?</p><p><br></p><p>The store currently lists Apps, Games, Films &amp; TV (+ Books I guess if you live in the US) as categories at the top of the screen, but I've never understood why Edge Extensions, Hardware, Windows Themes &amp; MS Service Subscriptions aren't listed as categories you can easily see and browse. These are all available through the Microsoft Store app, but the average consumer would never even know, because they're so buried down at the moment*. Same with Fonts when those become available via the Microsoft Store in the next feature update.</p><p><br></p><p>(*If you dig deep enough into the Collections under Apps you can find Edge Extensions &amp; Windows Themes, but these aren't apps so this doesn't even make sense).</p>

    <p>The earnings call this week confirmed Microsoft as the Enterprise company. Other than Xbox and that Windows is simply installed on new PCs is there any reason for a consumer to look at Microsoft for any product?</p>
