The Number Of Apps In The Store Windows 8

Fully functional version of the app store for Windows 8 was launched simultaneously with the start of sales of the system at the end of October this year.

Number of programs in the official desktop application store for the latest operating system Microsoft Windows 8 has exceeded 20,000, the vast majority of them - free of charge.

Fully functional version of the app store for Windows 8 was launched simultaneously with the start of sales of the system at the end of October this year. For comparison, the app store for the system Mac OS X, launched in January 2011, it took over a year to reach the mark of 10,000 programs.

And while comparing Windows and Mac OS X is not entirely correct, since the system from Microsoft has an overwhelming market share in desktop operating systems and, therefore, attracts more developers, application store for Windows 8 does show impressive momentum.
