App Store not Just for the iPhone Anymore

iPhone users continue to be overly impressed with the iPhone app store and I never have figured out why. Any Linux user recognizes it for what it really is which is just a software package repository. These have existed for various Linux distros almost since the beginning.

I came across this little project the other day call AllMyApps (http://allmyapps.com/) which puts a web based interface to a package repository creating a very efficient and clean App store for a number of popular Linux Distributions. Even more exciting news, they are working on a Windows version as well. This may just be the boost that the open software movement is looking for.
