Active Directory and the App store

    Question

  • I am wondering how corporation are going to use Win 8. Are they going to use Active directory to authenticate? If so, how the app store is going to work? I would need to validate the user on the server too.

  • Don't think the Windows App Store has any management capabilities to it, e.g. the ability to push apps, or uninstall remotely. Corporations might need to use, I think System Center, for something like that.

  • But what the App Store is going to use to identify the devise/user then? There would be some sort of link between a Live Id account and Active Directory?
