Raspberry Pi Launches App Store to Sweeten Its Ecosystem

The Raspberry Pi project launched an app store Monday to support its eponymous $35 Linux PC, which hit the market in February. The store will carry both free and paid apps. Its launch has stirred mixed reactions among Raspberry Pi enthusiasts, with some criticizing plans to offer paid apps and others defending the move. “The Pi App Store is a natural fit,” said Bill Weinberg, principal analyst and consultant at Linux Pundit. “It can address any or all of the post-load ecosystem, providing a channel for OS distributors, middleware and applications.”
