Boxee Launches New API

> I understand that they are working on getting hardware created, but they are expecting people to pay for little applets that will run under boxee on hardware that you either had to build yourself or hack to even run it in the first place?

Um, I don't think anywhere it suggests that this will be a paid for store. It looks to be a directory for people to distribute plugins. Publishers are then free to set up their own repositories of apps. More like the 'Podcast Directory' in iTunes than the 'iTunes Store'

  Plex has something similar called an App Store, but it's all free and open source, but the Plex guys specifically manage what goes into the store.
