I posted this question, https://superuser.com/questions/491034/what-applications-have-a-version-for-modern-ui-and-desktop, which was closed.
I understand the reasoning; the answer is going to be a list. I did think it would be allowed though, because it's a finite list, we're not rating items in the list, it's not based on opinion and there is a definite answer. I look to questions like What are the new shortcuts for Windows 8? as an example of (what I think is) a question similar to mine that wasn't not closed.
I see it's been closed by one high-rep user and one moderator so clearly my understanding is wrong.
I guess my question is, what is it about my question that is different to the question highlighted above, that makes it close-worthy?
