It’s a change that could mean Windows Store will be useful way to truly roam PCs , quickly install your favorite apps. We’ll have to wait on developers to take advantage of Desktop Bridge tool to actually convert apps, but this should make it easier for existing desktop apps to move over to Microsoft universal platform.

Unfortunately, this won’t mean the Windows Store will be full of all the desktop apps you know and love like Chrome, Photoshop, or the millions of useful productivity tools available on Windows. It will take time for developers to adjust and convert their apps, some might argue that Microsoft would be best served allowing regular desktop apps to be listed in Store in the interim.
