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).

Apple has demonstrated very well that the application store model, where they take a cut for simple distributing the applications is a money win. Actually who was the first to do this, because I know Steam is also very successful.

It's a jail win. Those who like jails will appreciate.
