Heads up! #Microsoft is on track to ban all commercial activity by #FOSS projects on Microsoft Store in about a week! This is even worse than their (eventually repealed) 2011 ban on #copyleft for their app store! 😡️ We demand rollback of this new policy: sfconservancy.org/blog/2022/ju

@conservancy I was considering selling builds of my new project on the Windows Store. Guess I'll have to setup my own infrastructure to charge for Windows builds.


@be @conservancy Looks like they just want to remove apps that are unofficially listed in the Microsoft Store: twitter.com/gisardo/status/154. So if you are the maintainer of the app you should be fine.

@be @conservancy In any case, it is always good to have a fallback and backup plans.
