Microsoft to Offer App Store [computerworld.com]For Developers
Microsoft Corp. is working on a software distribution scheme along the lines of Apple's iPhone App Store, CEO Steve Ballmer said yesterday at a developer's conference in Sydney, Australia.

But Microsoft has no plans to mimic Apple Inc. in another way, Ballmer added, rejecting the idea of using the open-source WebKit rendering engine to power the company's Internet Explorer (IE) Web browser. Apple relies on WebKit as the foundation of its Safari browser, as does Google Inc. for its Chrome.

During the question-and-answer portion of his time on stage at an event the company billed as "Liberation Day" for Australian developers, Ballmer said that Microsoft will soon launch a service that will let programmers sell their wares directly to consumers.
