Default Windows Shows Off Metro-based Store in Windows 8

Microsoft a few days ago held an event in San Francisco showing off its 'Windows Store', and while the goal was to convince developers to get on with what they do best, us non-dev folk can still see what the store is going to offer once Windows 8 launches. At the same event, a spokesperson also confirmed the date for the first Windows 8 beta: late February. This beta will include what seems to be full access to the store, allowing people to purchase applications right from the start.
