I've heard the "webstart is broke, don't fix it, move on" song before from
a number of people.  What I haven't heard is a credible solution to solving
the very real problem of keeping an app up-to-date in a corporate setting.
 For the most part, I agree that if you're in the business of selling
commercial software, selling and distributing through an app store probably
makes sense for you. Although I wouldn't relish having to build on all of
those platforms.

However, posting proprietary apps to external OS-specific app stores
doesn't really work for anyone in a corporate setting.  Neither does making
a user re-install an application every time you post a bug fix.  In
addition, many corporations limit the privileges they give users.
