    Geeze, Mike, I couldn't think of everything!

    I think you hit the nail squarely on the head when you said, "What about innovations by small and even semi amateur developers, many a good idea and SW came out from them."

    Oh, I don't doubt that, but it will be my choice on whether to download from the Store or from the "official" source. Betcha can't guess where I'd download.
