    And those are just some repercussions to be faced from hermetically closed systems. What about innovations by small and even semi amateur developers, many a good idea and SW came out from them. Even MS and Apple started like that ! Where would we be now without wide open systems.
    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, yeah, I remember now . . . Bill Gates and a friend started Microsoft in (I think) Bill Gates' garage.

    I would rather get the apps I need in places other than "The Store".

    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.
