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 dunno, I've installed countless applications that way and have never felt anything being held back or whatever.

Things are held back, you just don't see it. Again, see what self-signed apps can and can't do here : http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/Capabilities_%28S...

Also, since last year, application signing has become entirely free. http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Blogs/blog/nokia-developer...

Only for distribution on the Ovi store, which is fully under their control, so in this respect they are not much more lovable than the others actors.
