Windows Yesterday, Microsoft finally unveiled all the details regarding its Windows Store, which will be the default way to distribute Metro applications on Windows 8. Most of the details are all pretty standard and mirror those of other stores, but there's one interesting twist that is sure to make a lot of you happy: Microsoft has made special exceptions for open source software.

It doesn't make me "happy" that Microsoft will make exceptions to patronize FOSS. The whole app store concept on these terms disgusts me. Enforced licensing and a huge cut into developer revenue for doing nothing but hosting a monopoly.
