    I am finally listening to the podcast from yesterday.  The only way the store becomes relevant is when all apps for the Windows ECO system has to come from the store.  While there are still W32 apps and other mechanisms to run applications, I believe this will be the case.  I believe the same thing is going on for the Mac, that is why the store is irrelevant for the Mac too.  Just my two cents.
