After selling 60 million Windows 8 licenses to date, the touch-centric operating system has continued to grow, and app developers have a unique opportunity to create apps that work both with Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 and its desktop OS, Windows 8.
The crossover nature of Windows 8 has surprised some developers - write one set of code and, with minimal effort, you have an app for phone, tablet and desktop. This presents a much larger potential audience than Microsoft’s prior mobile Windows offerings. Whether the app store approach to distribution catches on for desktops remains to be seen and will determine whether Windows 8’s crossover potential is worth developers investing in.
