Windows 8 will have an app store

John Moe Aug 18, 2011

Leave it to Microsoft to find a great idea and then copy it two years later. The company we used to call REDMOND SOFTWARE GIANT back in Seattle launched a blog (a blog! Again with the being up to date!) to detail the development of the forthcoming operating system. In a post yesterday entitled “Introducing the team”, one of the groups listed was “App Store”. This has been rumored for a while, especially when Microsoft joined the scrap regarding Apple’s claim to the name “App Store”. Windows 8 is expected next year, probably in the fall. There is no confirmation as yet to the rumor that Microsoft employees working on the project all wear LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers jerseys.
