      I'm not sure I can agree with Tim. I haven't heard anything nice or positive from users who have downloaded their games through the Windows store...

      Tim Sweeney claims Microsoft will destroy Steam gradually using Windows 10 | ExtremeTech

       

      When asked for additional details on what he believed Microsoft would do, Sweeney replied:

      Slowly, over the next 5 years, they will force-patch Windows 10 to make Steam progressively worse and more broken. They’ll never completely break it, but will continue to break it until, in five years, people are so fed up that Steam is buggy that the Windows Store seem like an ideal alternative. That’s exactly what they did to their previous competitors in other areas. Now they’re doing it to Steam. It’s only just starting to become visible. Microsoft might not be competent enough to succeed with their plan but they are certainly trying.
