Question: Okay, as you know that Windows 11 is going to release with a new MS Store. And they are done with UWP metro apps and just keep the normal .exe softwares. Will you add REAPER into their store? It will make REAPER even more popular than before because then lots of people will search for DAWs in their store. Right now, only FL Studio is there but their mobile version, not desktop. So yup, if you do this, REAPER would be the first major DAW to come there.

    We're not really interested in putting REAPER on stores, it's better for us and our users to just be a separate download.

    I can also imagine, that appstores have some release latency due app verification processes, just like Google and IOS-appstores have. This would delay bugfix-releases that fix major issues, regressions or crashes introduced with the last release from yesterday. This could lead to unusable apps for users for days which can be annoying or even have legal consequences

    when projects can't be done and financial losses occur. I would stay away from that as well because of this reason alone.
