Gatekeeper was never really designed for corporate style use, but to be honest, neither was the mac itself. For that matter, Windows PCs aren't really designed for corporate use, either.
My worry is that it works like Gatekeeper, though. The Windows Store is a hideous mess, especially on the free side - a lot of programs that should be free come up as low voted "lite" versions that do nothing without you paying for the real program. A prime example of this is .7z - the default programs (and there are about 20) are all view only unless you pay their fee and all you get is a touch interface 7zip, a program which you can download and use free on non-touch devices. I got so frustrated finding one that I just gave up and installed 7zip (this was a touch supporting laptop). Uninstalling one of these crapware programs is completely unintuitive to a desktop user, as well (supports the touch paradigm only). I actually had no idea how until my wife got a Windows Nokia phone.
And yes, I think the Windows Store is far worse than the Android store in this respect - way too many "lite" programs or trialware that does little or nothing without you paying for them. With android you usually get advertisement injection with this sort of free program. I'd rather have that than shakedown-ware. For reference, on android I had no problems finding a free .7z extractor (and it compresses, too!). It was the first hit I got and had 4.2 stars (first I got on Windows was 2 stars).
No, I don't mind paying for software, but when the program is free on the same platform just with a different interface I draw the line. Set up a paypal account and ask for donations if you are a poor college student. Be sure to state that you are a poor college student on the download page - I'm a sucker for pity pay donations. My worst fear is a Gatekeeper-like app locking the vast majority of users to some money grubbing bottom feeder developers like people that make money this way. This is capitalism at its worst, profiting off of someone else's creation.
