Dear Friends / Customers / CoWorkers;
I have been having a love affair recently. After a dozen years committed to the database industry, I have fallen in LOVE with WordPress.
I still have a lot to learn about WordPress. I know HTML allright.. I know Php a little.. and I LOVE how WordPress.com is JUST ABOUT EVERYWHERE. I haven’t seen an app generate this much excitement since SQL Server Analysis Services.
But I just LOVE this platform. I love combining WordPress with other applications, it’s easily the most exciting thing I’ve ever seen. ‘Standing on the shoulders of giants’ has a whole new meaning to me now.
UNTIL NOW. NOW THEY REMOVED THE WORDPRESS.COM APP FROM THE APP STORE? Are you KIDDING me?
This item is no longer available. This is what I get when I go to INSTALL the app. I’ve downloaded this thing onto a dozen machines.. and now I can’t use it any longer? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
This is the ‘error message’ I get when I try to install WORDPRESS.COM app in the Windows Store:
Sorry, this item has been removed and is no longer available for purchase from the Windows Store.
The world doesn’t run on Apple. It still runs on Windows. Fucking idiots.
I have been using the Windows 8.0 / Windows 8.1 / Windows Server 2012 Application Store.. EXTENSIVELY. I LOVE WINDOWS 8.. REPEAT.. I LOVE WINDOWS 8.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT WINDOWS 8.I *REALLY* only use about a half-dozen apps from the App Store.. but JEEZ they are nice. I don’t *TRUST* a lot of Third Party Software (anything not written by ME or Microsoft).
The Windows 8 WordPress.com app is EASILY the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Writing blogs is just as easy as typing into Excel.
And Now, I come to find out that they have REMOVED the WordPress.com application from the App Store?
WOW. I CANNOT FATHOM THIS. Windows 8 WordPress.com app has been removed from the store!?!??!
WHAT THE FUCK? Get your ACT together, Microsoft and WordPress. I don’t care WHO you think you care, or WHAT you think that know..
IT’S FUCKING BULLSHIT THAT I CANNOT USE WINDOWS 8 APP STORE.
THIS **NEEDS** TO GET MORE ATTENTION. I *WILL* BE BUILDING WESBITES AND POSTS ABOUT THIS FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS.
Bring back the WordPress.com to the Windows Store.. OR ELSE THE BUNNY GETS IT!?!?!
THIS IS THE DEATH KNELL FOR MICROSOFT WINDOWS APP STORE.
IF YOU WORK AT MICROSOFT AND GIVE A HOOT ABOUT THE APP STORE THEN PLEASE JOIN ME IN INSISTING THAT WORDPRESS.COM BRING BACK THEIR WINDOWS APP FOR BLOGGING.
