This is OK for starters but when you are playing catch up, desperate measures are called for.

Other ideas would be:

MS should just pay the makers of the top apps in other stores to make the same quality apps for for Win 8 and WP8.

MS should give full profits for the first year to all developers of paid apps.

MS should put more app developers on their own payroll.

MS should partner with other companies and give them a break on software prices if they develop apps for 8.
