Why do Windows 8 apps take so long to load?


I've been wondering this for a while, but nearly every metro app takes forever to load (my laptop has 6gb ram; i5 3210M processor) but they can still take more than 10 seconds to load. IMO, if this doesn't get fixed by windows 10, it'll be a huge issue because its easier for the user to just access a website or use a desktop app.

If Microsoft really wants their app store to grow and thrive, consumers are going to need good apps that respond as consumers expect them too. No reason for an app to take longer to load on a laptop than on a phone.
