How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Faster certification process for publishing and updating apps and games

It would be great if the time it takes for an app or game to be certified was shorter. A full 2 weeks before an app or game is published to the Marketplace is far too long. It would be more bearable if theupdates had a shorter turnaround time, but they don't. Want to push an update? That's another 2 weeks.

Also some moderation of the marketplace would be great to get rid of all the clutter or misleading apps.

        there should be a way to allow quick updates for current apps that suffer from a major problem and a fix has to be published quickly.

        for this "express submission" an extra fee might be charged

        Even making simple changes only in the description of an app takes too long. Last time 10 days. This have to get faster
