@Vaccano: "and those passionate about software development". O RLY? If someone is passionated about software development, why would they develop in something where you HAVE to ask Microsoft for PERMISSION TO DISTRIBUTE YOUR OWN APPLICATION? AND forced to pay them a 30% cut of the sales. LOL
NOT in this life time, not for me. Never!
If you were truly passionate about software development, you'd focus on development and let somebody else handle the distribution. If you think that somebody should be willing to do it for free, you'll need to wait until your next lifetime cuz' it ain't gonna happen in this one.
