Nothing has changed and why CAN'T MS have their own store?

Gamefly has just released their own digital distribution store and Intel has had their own AppUp for years

Does Gabe have anything to say to GameFly or intel?

Basically Gabe now has extended services that supply 'applications', bnot just games, so he wants his cake. I see no issue with the Windows store and you can still install what you want outside of said store.

Gabe, grow up, compete, bring better products to market (And fix the mac client that suffers from many, many problems... according to the people that use macs).

Who in their right mind would use a mac for computer gaming?

Incidentally, I thought Apple was planning to go down the walled app store route with OSX as well?
