Although many users feel that the version of iTunes for Windows never been thin all should (unlike in OS X), always has been available to Windows users. With the new Microsoft operating system, and with the recent arrival of version 11 of Apple's multimedia application, many users wonder if iTunes would see in Windows 8 Metro interface adapted.
In this case, it seems that Microsoft is very interested in the availability of a version of iTunes adapted to the Windows 8 Metro Interface and Windows RT, and that apparently is one of most sought apps in the store of the Microsoft operating system .
The reality is that iTunes 11, if that is available to Windows 8, at least it is the version for the classic Windows desktop, but Microsoft believes it is not enough. In fact, Microsoft itself CFO, Tami Reller has made some statements about the arrival of iTunes to Windows 8 Metro and RT:
They should not expect iTunes on Windows 8 in the short term. iTunes has a great demand. The welcome mat is laid. Not for lack of trying.
That is, Microsoft's interest is more than clear. But what about Apple? With an updated version, though not adapted to the interface of Windows 8, why bother going to create a new interface for Windows 8 or RT version?.
In fact, creating a new interface of iTunes for Windows would mean the loss of identity that currently has the application as grid interface for iTunes 11 is the sign of submission of the application and the most important development of the last update.
Furthermore, adaptation of the iTunes interface to the new interface of Microsoft operating system for Apple would double the effort, as happened with Safari, in addition to the application available on two fronts. And right now, where all efforts are focused on Apple OS X 10.9 and iOS 7.
For the moment, awaiting the arrival of the Metro interface to iTunes 11 for Windows and not a specific version for Windows RT, but it always leaves a door open. See what happens in the medium term.
