Amusing Windows 8 Metro Madness Continues : App Store to Be Only Source of Metro Apps

Windows 8 Metro Madness Continues :
App Store to be only source of Metro apps

Until now you could get Window's 8 programs from anywhere and install it on your computer. However Microsoft has borrowed some new concepts from Apple and is planning to modify Windows accordingly.

Firstly, from now on it is uncool to call programs - "programs" or "software". They should be called the cool word "Apps" (Apple is claiming a patent for that). But the imitation of Apple's App store doesn't stop there. In Windows 8 you will be able to buy apps for your Windows 8 Metro UI only from the Windows 8 App store. And last but not the least, following the Apple revenue model, Microsoft will be charging 30% of the price of the "App" as its commission.

While Windows customers will be free to buy non-metro "programs" from elsewhere for now, in the future it may become compulsory to buy all Windows software only from the Windows App store. Linux, here I come.

My bad and apologies for jumping the gun.
I just read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metro_%28design_language%29
So this is pretty much like Apple's IOS apps?? only meant for the mobile OS segment?
Some clarity on this would be nice.

PS: Somewhere in the dark corners of my mind, I still see MS plotting to have all applications/programs sold through its store to curb piracy. I also feel the developers would not mind this as they are sure to be losing more in revenue than the 30% they will be giving away to MS.

^^ There is much more to Windows 8 than these stoopid reviewers can comprehend....
they are acting like th eIndian TV media !! useless and willing to sell their headlines !!

The metro apps are a part of the Metro presentation group in Win8, they ae superb.. my friend named LongZheng ( the original member of Chevron WP7 ) was and still is supporting the app he wrote, you search for MEtroTwit !!
it is the best client ever for twiter in Windows, uses Metro presentation foundation and is superb !!
