Windows 8 Will Have an App Store After All

Talk of a Windows 8 app store has swirled around like the approaching fall leaves, but Microsoft's never broached the subject—until now, on their new blog.

It's back to the Windows Live Division President, Steven Sinofsky, who introduced the core team of engineers working on next year's release. Running through the list of teams, Sinofsky included an app store team, along with app compatibility and device compatibility; applications and media experience, and app experience.

It's that first one which intrigues as the most, as it's the first time Microsoft has pretty much confirmed the existence of an app store in the next iteration of Windows.

Good, they need it! Windows really needs to streamline itself, an app store would be great.

They'd be a bit silly if they didn't follow popular trends like these.
