Windows Way back in old and boring January of this year, Microsoft announced they would be working together with the Windows Phone 7 homebrew community, with the goal of creating a stable, supported way for homebrew developers and people interested in homebrew applications to enable side-loading on their WP7 devices. Well, they took their sweet time, but the ChevronWP7 team (Rafael Rivera, Chris Walsh, and Long Zheng) and Microsoft have just announced the results.

I'm 99.9% sure that homebrew falls under the ***Open Signed Online***
And Apple allows none. So yeah... Apple is till the odd one out.


I've read this here a few times in various articles, and someone, can't remember who, posted this link

http://developer.apple.com/programs/ios/distribute.html

that has a section about Ad Hoc Distribution,

Share your application with up to 100 other iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch users with Ad Hoc distribution. Share your application through email, or by posting it to a website or server.


So I'm a bit confused. Can someone clarify for me how Apple is the odd one out when it seems their option is less restrictive than Symbian? Is there something I'm misinterpreting?
