This information is just data, so use it how you will. It doesn't say anything to the quality of the apps, usefulness, or other things regarding the apps, just the quantity. October 30, when Windows 8 launched, it had 10,000 apps. November 6 saw 13,000, November 14, 16,000, and November 22, 20,000.

Some OEMs are saying their poor PC sales are due to poor Windows 8 demand. However, there have been more than 40 million licenses sold so far, and developer interest seems to be increasing, a sign that Windows 8 is a viable platform with plenty of demand.
