I think Microsoft had the idea of an app store before anyone.
If you ran Windows Xp and never looked at the Start Menu, you would see a link called Windows Catalog. That would had taken you to the Microsoft Store, where you'd be able to browse some random Microsoft software and some hardware. Obviously, it was totally under-developed to be what we know now as an app store.
Windows 8 will have a dedicated app store for most likely the ARM systems and maybe the desktops. People say that Microsoft is way late in the game, but the fact is there that they had the concept before apple or android in a full-fledged operating system.
Sure must suck for them for being beat out like that...
