Arm Apps Cost!!!

I have a Surface 2 Windows tablet that runs an Arm processor. I love the tablet. I DON'T love having to pay money for Apps that are free for Windows 8, but not for Arm based Windows 8! Plex Media Server, free Windows 8 downlolad, not for Arm=PAY. VLC Media Codecs, free download Windows 8, not for Arm=PAY! You get the picture. Had I known this, I might not have bought 2 of these, with keyboards, for over a grand! Feel like I'm being milked for stuff everyone else gets for free.
