Submission + - Windows Store will not take a cut from sales (neowin.net)

North Korea writes: Windows has always lacked a central place to buy and download software and games, which has been criticized as insecure design by Linux users. The upcoming Windows 8 will feature Windows Store for the first time, and Microsoft has revealed it will take a 0% cut from the sales. Apple notoriously takes a 30% cut from App Store sales for iPhone, iPad and Mac OSX. In addition to not taking a cut from sales, Microsoft will also ensure that the applications in the Windows Store are malware free and good quality. This should provide a repository-like application download system for computers with Windows and a good marketplace for application and games developers.
