Am I correct to understand that the Windows Store is the only method by which I can deploy a Metro App?  I.E. suppose I want to write an app for my mother-in-law to use on her Win8 tablet.  Are you telling me that I can only get it to her machine by running it through the approval process and piping it through the store?

I think I heard something somewhere else.  I couldn't finish Ted's video today because the bandwidth of the corporate LAN seems to be bottling it up, but I got far enough to hear him say that the store was the ONLY method of distribution.  Is this correct?

As a Windows developer I have always counted on the fact that I could distribute my app as I see fit.  Somehow this just doesn't add up.
