Quote:Tim Sweeney is at it again, this time calling out Microsoft on Twitter for its rumored upcoming Windows 10 Cloud SKU. The new OS will be similar to Windows RT, in that it will run UWP that are installed from the Store. Of course, these are still early reports, as it's not entirely clear that Microsoft won't allow users to sideload apps as well.Of course, Valve is exempt from this since they are still bundling Steam with SteamOS, but the FTC doesn't care about Valve or is in Valve's pocket, as proven by the fact that they still won't go after Valve for Steam Early Access prohibiting competition on price and blatantly violating the Sherman Antitrust Act.
No, it's not OK. Microsoft is a monopoly with a large majority of PC OS market share, and is barred from forced "tying" by antitrust law.
