General Development Application stores are growing everywhere like mushrooms. While users have initially embraced application stores because of the ease they offer with application installation, developers have several complaints. Division of profits from paid application and ineffectiveness of the screening process are among the major issues. Are application stores the best distribution channel possible? Can they satisfy both developers and users?

Interesting. 0install recently switched to the tag-line "the antidote to app-stores":

Still trying to work out whether users still see "app store" in a positive light or not.
