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?

Repository:

- the OS/packaging group assembles the apps, compiles them, tests them, etc, and distributes them


For your distribution upstream repository, sure. There are lots of non-distribution repositories, though, and users can easily add those third party repositories. It's easy to build your own repository, too.
