Microsoft Open Windows Store in The Open Source

Microsoft Open Windows Store in The Open Source. Microsoft has much appeal to companies with an online store that offers them secure applications and even open source solutions. Many open source applications are welcome in the Windows Store to be launched in late February, along with the beta version of Windows 8.

The contract to be signed by the developers to distribute their application on their Windows Store will indeed make open source software, provided they have been approved by Open Source Initiative (OSI). This opens the door to the majority of applications for business ideas. But there is a limit. In fact, between the lines, and without naming them directly, however, Microsoft does understand the GPL will not be permitted.

Work around the problem?
Microsoft seems to want to avoid a problem that arose recently in Apple. A developer of the software media player VLC had indeed complained that distributing VLC on IOS devices, that is to say according to the conditions imposed by Apple, violated the GPL VLC. VLC had to be removed from the Apple AppStore.

Developers can still get around the problem by distributing the software under two licenses, which, however, requires first the agreement of all copyright holders of the source code,” as reported the H Online, specializing in Open Source.

Compensation incentives for developers
Note that if Microsoft made here of the foot to the Open Source community, the editor had also attempted to garnish her shop of application at best in announcing more attractive remuneration for developers. Like Apple, Microsoft will collect 30% of the proceeds from the sale of an application, but if the latter exceeds US $25,000 of sales, then Microsoft will lower its tax at 20%. Something that is not Apple.

Shop meet the expectations of businesses
Microsoft also said that companies could deploy their own applications, without going through this store. In addition, access to the Windows Store can be managed, denied or restricted by it administrators. The editor of Redmond also pointed out that in the case of legal problem or security, he was able to delete remote applications downloaded on its Windows Store. Google or Apple have used this function, but on their mobile terminals iOS or Android. Microsoft will possibility on PC.

However, the terms of use specify that Microsoft has no obligation to return the data generated by applications changed or deleted. “If the Windows Store, one of its applications, or any of its content is changed, your data may be permanently deleted,” alert the editor in the conditions of use of the Windows Store.
