Microsoft pampering its developers

Microsoft is in the final rush to launch the awaited Windows 8 and Windows RT this fall. Developers have submitted their applications and compiled and re compiled (and re re compiled and re re re …) their code from the Consumer Release, the General Preview, the Release to Manufacturer.

Now Microsoft is hesitating between two stances:

  • Being very strict on the UX guidelines by rejecting all applications that are off the target then offering a compelling windows UX
  • Being easy-going and certifying nearly all applications to have at launch a market place with a huge number of available apps

This is certainly a thin line to follow. But if Microsoft does it wisely it will surely lead to both a good app portfolio and a great user experience.
