  • The main place to get additional apps, the Windows Store, is not active in the WDP.

     

    Not all the features are included in the Windows 8 Developer Preview, the Windows App Store is one feature not included.

    From the Building Windows 8 blog:
    NOTE: The preview build does not include every feature shown this morning.  Shown but not in the Developer Preview release include the Windows Store, Windows Live Metro style apps, and some of the user interface features.  The focus of the preview is the API and development tools for building Metro style apps.
