Just one thing: thank you!
We’ll keep you posted about our developments very quickly!
VLC is already available as a Desktop application for Windows 8 as The operating system supports all the legacy applications in the Desktop Mode,but due to the limitations of the Windows RT platform there was a Need for the Modern UI based application for the VLC Player.This is a good sign for the ecosystem as this will encourage more developers to port their apps to Windows RT platform along with Windows 8.
