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.

I agree with you Morgan, but there's one small correction to be made. Licenses do not protect authors interests, they protect copyright holders interests. Often times the copyright holder is the author, and often times it is not. Either way it's an important enough detail to point out.
