I'm a bit lost in Windows.

Now, I admit - I've used OSX a lot more than Windows, so if i'm missing anything please tell me.

I really love what Microsoft has done with Windows 8.1 - there are a couple of places that could use improvement, but overall it's clean, simple and quite fast. I miss some of the multiple desktop functionality from OSX but i can live with that - snapping alleviates that somewhat.

The only problem is, where are the great programs? on OSX I have apps like Day One, Notational Velocity, Instacast, Tweetbot etc. Where can I find stuff like this on Windows? Am I missing the real gems or do they just not exist?

I get that Windows has great professional software support - Photoshop, etc. I'd just love some great looking programs for play.

Any suggestions?
