This could definitely be a game-changer.

i certainly think its a step in the right direction. Currently, we have so many different app stores where developers are trying to win over customers and providers are trying to cash in on the app explosion. This has caused a massive incompatibility to arise where one app bought one place does not work on another. Although I think a unified system much like the internet for app is far and away, I do think a little common sense needs to come from all this private me me me stuff. Breaking down these fences should eventually become a place where we can use any phone we want on any network anywhere in the world and with any app or os.

i say great idea for all OS's... having an android phone and an ipad is frustrating some of the popular apps are not available for android phones.

but speaking specifically for WP. i really want them to succeed and the whole story about their "MarketPlace" is a big hinderance... android & ios apps would both be a great help!

...aren't they creating an "ipad version" of Microsoft Office?

I really think its also about the quality of apps than the sheer number. For instance, the fruit ninja app is absolutely disgusting on wp8. I own it and thus I can tell. It looks a lot better on the iPhone 4. That kind of difference also makes things worse for Windows users. IMPO, if there wont be any compability issues, and if the apps will work just as smoothly as they do on their native OSs, then its awesome. I just need them to start right away. :D
