Nobel Prize 2017 for Economy. I beg to differ.

Nudging Theory? I am sure you can “Google out” the essence of it. But here is my favorite citation from Wikipedia:

Windows 10 , the story so far

In all of my gullible-ity of one seasoned M£FT guinea pig, I assumed the UAC  issues have somehow been solved as WIN10 progressed through numerous updates. But no, it was not. Is there no end to this?

Think hard. Think …

I am thinking hard, and …. no. I can’t find an excuse for M$FT Windows 10 decision makers. Yes, I have read good posts for grown ups on this issue, but still I am not able to think of an good reason for this kind of thinking. Can you?

I am doing my best not to get fed-up. But this bellow is a fundamental confusion. Not a strong delivery.

Rant Reason Explanation (RRE): Windows App Store has no reason to be hidden from anyone NOT having Microsoft Account. Technically one needs to login with Microsoft Account for the purpose of App installing and arriving to her desired machine. But this has nothing to do with browsing through the shop.
