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.

This is being introduced so very, very late compared to its competitors. Traditionally a big advantage to Windows has been its huge apps base and developer fanbase. It will be interesting to see if Microsoft can pull this off so late in the game.
