Windows Why, would you look at this. All this time we were expecting Apple to be the first one to flip the switch and limit desktop users to Mac App Store applications and turn Mac OS X into a walled garden, but in fact, Microsoft will be the first to flip this switch. As it turns out, Metro applications can only be installed through the Windows Store - with sideloading only for enterprises and developers (this doesn't apply to legacy applications).

If this is sold as a Windows copy protection measurement for Microsoft, couldn't you just make windows install media and the installed OS query the system for signatures without having to lock out other OSes...?
