I don't know if the AppStore is all that innovative, but I guess it is
a nice implementation. I have certainly had thoughts about having a
nice portal site for Haiku applications with both free and commercial
software and all the features you mentioned (ratings, user
discussions, etc.) I'm sure Karl from Haikuware and other people have
had similar ideas.

I think this will happen some day, but I don't think it should really
have an impact on the R1 release. As you say, it is a Glass Elevator
