Coder Nikolaus Gebhardt shared his Windows 10 frustrations with the world and quickly has become a Reddit sensation.
Gebhardt, perhaps best known as the developer behind the "Irrlicht" open-source project, recently blogged about his problems with Windows 10. And in a blog post titled "Why you should not develop apps for Windows 10," he explained why he will no longer develop Windows 10 apps.
"So it seems like [Microsoft doesn't] care. The quality of the App Store is extremely low -- no wonder -- there are probably nice apps in there, but they cannot be found at all. Why should any developer create an app for Windows 10, if the sales will likely be zero?" he wrote.
Gebhardt first shared his blog post via Twitter.

It did not take long for some Twitter users to question Gebhardt.
@Ambiera Lots of other apps show up just fine & I've never heard of anyone else having this problem. You must be doing something wrong— Judaaaaahhhh (@jdrch) January 21, 2016
Conversely, some Twitter users echoed Gebhardt's Windows 10 sentiments.
The problem right now, is that Microsoft don't believe in Windows 10 Mobile. They are not motived to develop, just 5 fans care about.— Vitor Mikaelson ⚡ (@vitorgrs) January 21, 2016
There were others who expressed their concerns about outside-the-box Windows 10 problems, too.
My biggest problem with @Windows 10 is that the Solitaire game no longer lets me spacebar to get the next card.— T.J. Lauerman (@ThatSportsGamer) January 20, 2016
And let's not forget about the alleged link between Windows 10 and Internet speed, either.
Well, the internet problem is fixed, but I'm now on Windows 10 and have slower internet :/— SimplyRemove (@SimplyRemove) January 24, 2016
But perhaps Twitter user @bucky_roberts summed up Gebhardt's argument best.
