Novell Opens SUSE Builds App Store

Novell is taking a cue from Apple and Google by setting up their own app store for SUSE Appliance Platform builds.

But as ZDNet's Dana Blankenhorn said today, a SUSE Appliance Platform store isn't quite the same as Apple's or Google's app stores.

"Apps are often interfaces to a single Web site," Blankenhorn wrote, "or at the minimum programs that do one thing very well. As Google has proven they can be built with a point-and-click interface."

What Novell is showcasing are builds of SUSE Appliances.

"A build is something completely different," Blankenhorn explained. "It's a software stack meant to emulate an entire system, an entire stack including the operating system. Rosenberg said she has already seen stacks with games and browsers, but it's a stretch to call the result an app store."
