...More than 93,000 products will be offered, she said, including products from Microsoft's competition.

Microsoft will not receive revenues from sales of products sold through Windows Marketplace, however, Walsh said. Instead, the site will serve as a portal for retail partners. The site will provide reviews from the site users themselves, much like Amazon.com. Microsoft employees will moderate forums and explain how to connect everything together, she said. Eventually, the site will be more tightly integrated with the rest of Microsoft's other online properties, including MSN, whose engineers designed the site.

"virtual storefront" for hardware and software

Just Computer Hardware and Software?

If people are downloading the windows updates frequently enough they will probably have the 'chance' to "take a look in the windows shop while the patch installs".

Now all I am waiting to see is whether I will need a "windows shopping passport" to download windows updates in the future.

Funny.
