How is this any different, than say the Apple, Appstore, (Which probably was the pebble, that set off this landslide in the firest place.), or MicroSofts Appstore, which nobody 1) asked for, or 2) bothers to use.
Secondly, Google has a monopoly? COME AGAIN? This crack would be more true of Apple, than the Chocolate Factory. To the best of my knowledg Google provides the SDK / IDE for free, along with a link to Oracles' Java SE, so anyone can just about use these applications in learing to code, after a bad fall from grace in the department of Journalism. these "Apps" can be self hosted, of taken to any nuimber of Third-Party Appstors for people to use, and Google wouldn't see a dime of it.
Why is it that Epic feel entilteld to use the Bus for free, when the rest of use have to stomp up neary 2$ for a short jaunt across Midtown? They clearly want to have the benifit of Google, or Apple's infrastructure, but, they think that this resource should be made free to them?
