    Windows Store hits 100,000 apps: Impressed?

    Microsoft's Windows Store has hit the 100,000 apps mark in short order.

    "Thanks for a great \\build! Just passed 100k apps in the Windows Store," Microsoft tweeted earlier today.

    That was fast. Windows 8 was launched only last October.

    100,000 apps? While that's a nice round number I can't imagine using more than a small handful of them - meaning five or even fewer. Unless I know that there's a specific app I want from the store I rarely ever open it. Early on after the release of Windows 8 I browsed the store to see what was available, but after 3-4 pages of stuff I pretty much just quit looking.

    Is this number in any way related to "100 million people bought Windows 8?
