I can't imagine that you would think Android method is better considering there is no control or protection for the developers and users end up getting Apps with virus'.

    That 30% Microsoft charges drops to a lower percentage if the App sells well, this will hopefully entice developers to make useful Apps as opposed to stupid fart Apps. You don't have to be a full fledged programmer to create Apps, even the hobbyist that can do a little programming can make some money by developing Apps. I don't see where the issue is, its a win win situation and that includes the user who has a choice to install Apps or not. Lastly, Microsoft does not advertise in Windows, Ads are restricted to Apps and those are usually free with the option to purchase to remove ads.
    :thumbup: Completely agree with you. I was about to say what you said about 'ads being restricted to apps'. Glad you said it first

    Its nothing like the repository in linux because there are no possibility (afaik) to offer programs free....

    so these nice little free programs for win are not going to be available via appstore.

    btw. an programs with toolbars/adware = crap - I would never install such thing. I would rather like to pay a small amount for it, so at this point the appstore could be great.
