Microsoft Office becomes first desktop app listed in Windows Store

Microsoft Office logoMicrosoft said that it was going to add desktop app listings to the Windows Store in the Windows 8 Release Candidate, and now the very first one has made its appearance. Fittingly, it's one of Microsoft's very own pieces of software — Microsoft Office 2010. As we previously reported, desktop apps in the Windows Store are merely glorified links to the developer's website, and don't even offer basic info like install size, rating, or permissions. The Redmond-based company has strict requirements for certifying apps and allowing them to be offered in the Windows Store, and desktop apps have a few extra prerequisite. Namely, developers are allowed only up to two links (32- and 64-bit), and those links must go directly to the purchase page. Additionally, the prices and version numbers on both the Microsoft Store frontend and the developer's website must line up. If you want to check out the listing for yourself, you can find it in the Productivity section of the Windows Store now.
