Give Windows 7 Users Access to Windows Store Modern Apps

Rich at Windows Observer thinks Microsoft should open the doors of the Windows Store a bit wider and make modern apps available to Windows 7 users.–PC Pitstop
Just this past week big news came out of Microsoft’s annual company meeting that a unified app store was demoed for the employee’s in attendance.
Apparently this will give users in the Microsoft ecosystem a single point of access to both Windows and Windows Phone apps along with a possibility that Xbox One apps might also be combined someday.
I think it is a great and very logical idea to combine the app stores and the development flow. That way Windows devs can create an app and easily make it available to someone on Windows or on Windows Phone. That kind of common development process and tools makes a lot of sense and will help grow the number of Windows Store apps for both platforms.
You know what else makes sense to me? Making Modern Apps available to Windows 7 users.
Now when you stop laughing, I know you are, just give the idea a moment to sink in.
