    kinds of looks like any page with tons of flash games on it.

    Sorry but not going to go with the standard Apple coping crap here. Apple copies a lay out that was out for those web pages with flash games.
    On top of that it looks a lot like the game folder on Windows Vista/7. On top of that MS called apple on saying App Store was generic looks like they are making the point even bigger now.

    Picture from the game folder from my laptop attached

    Sure, in your mind it's always Apple's fault.

    If you hate Apple so much why are you here?

    no read what I was saying. I am not going to go with the standard MS is coping Apple crap that will be coming flying soon.
    Hell Apple coping the flash game lay out more proves that the simple lay out used is kind of a standard long before Apple used it. It was shutting down the standard argument MS is coping.
    BTW I would not even say Apple is really copy any one. It is just a simple layout and lets face it there are only so many ways to do that layout.

    So flash games call themselves the flash App Store before? :rolleyes:

    Oh wait, Flash games are basically copying the Mac OS icons and grids.

    The Apple logo looks a bit like the Apple Records logo.

    There aren't a lot of unique layouts Microsoft could have used. It doesn't look unique, but neither did iTunes Store layout.


    This looks like Windows, or a Microsoft product, or a popular 3-pane layout.

    I don't see much of a similarity. It's branded as Windows, and you can tell by the ugly colours and UI treatments. Granted, to me it looks a lot more confusing than the App Store, but it's still a basic layout styled for Windows.

    The truth is, there aren't a whole lot of different ways to put content on a page and have it organized.

    There's only so many ways in which you can lay out what Apple has already chewed up and spat out. We can forgive MS for using the same layout, obviously. Of course, it's also obvious that this is another "me too" effort by them in a long string of late-to-the-party last-ditch attempts to not look like complete retards.

    Anyway, are these shots even confirmed?

    They are in desperate need of a change in management, regardless.
