They're referring to "metro" apps which can only be acquired from the microsoft app store, WinRT is the lame version of Windows 8 that only runs on an ARM processor.

No, that's Windows RT, the stupid ARM only operating system. WinRT is the development platform for all Metro apps, x86, x64 and ARM. Yes it's confusing as hell because microsoft is stupid.

What, did you think MS was going to offer the app store and certification free

Certification is free but costly and time inefficient for the developer. You need to buy a license to even submit content to the store. The user and log tracking is pitiful too. Stack traces are taking 7 days to be received for my companys app submission, it's ridiculous. They take a hefty cut of each sale just like the apple store and just like the apple store you can't load your own apps.

People give Android shit but they're the only ones who don't have their heads up their asses about a truly open platform. If you don't like the play store you can load your own apps manually or even use a custom store.
