WWWorst App Store
Понравилось введение о том, чем сейчас является mainstream часть WWW:
Picture the most abusive app store:
* Programs in it are meant to run on your own computer.
* However, you have to be online to run them.
* Every time you start them, they contact the app store.
* If there is an updated version, it's installed automatically, no
questions asked. You'd rather run the earlier version? Tough.
* If the app store decides you're no longer welcome, the program
won't start any more.
* If the app store servers are offline, or if you are, it won't
* Programs in this app store must also hold your data in the app
* If the program won't start, you can't get to the data on the
servers any more.
* You may have downloaded backups of your data, but you'd have to
figure out how to decode them without the program.
