I've always disliked the store, espeically when they use it to patch windows in the past what is the point of windows update if they don't use it for that sole reason.

It works but like most things it could be a lot better.

Many reasons to do that and that's why the industry is moving towards that way of updating. For example Android is moving towards this way of updating almost everything through the Play Store.

By making things more modular they can update independent frameworks without needing a full update that requires a restart. You can make this happen with security updates or app updates reserving actual OS related modules/kernel to a full blown required restart and takes a few minutes.

This allows for faster and easier updates which makes it more likely to be updated on more devices, reducing the amount of versions installed which makes debugging easier for customer support and just plain making things simpler for development. Which then leads to less bugs.

Very excited for this change. Would be nice if they allowed you do what GoG does and show different storefront games where you can launch from one store.

This could change the app store from an undesirable feature to a very useful one. It would certainly be nice to have a one stop shop to get all software. Of course, developers will need to get on board, but with all limitations gone, that's more likely to happen.
