Windows Store Hits 100,000 Apps In 8 Months

Microsoft announced today that the Windows Store has just surpassed the 100,000 apps mark in just over eight months.

That was fast. Windows 8 was launched only last October. How fast? Google took longer to reach that point -- roughly two years after the Android Market formally opened for business. And it took about a year and a half for the iPad to garner 100,000 iPad-specific apps. "The platform has been out for 453 days, with developers getting access to its software development kit in January 2010, on the day the product was first announced," CNET wrote at the time.
