For me the most interesting part of the Windows 11 event was the announcement that developers can integrate their own “commerce engine” that allows them to use Microsoft’s app store for discovery but I assume allows developers to directly control the transaction, which enables them to get paid without Microsoft taking a cut. I wonder whether developers have to share data with Microsoft. It’s an interesting idea that different from what Apple has been doing.
