I'm with the "Store == Paid Software" crowd here, especially for what
is very much an internet OS - it smacks of:

Adobe Store
Microsoft Store
Apple Store
Dell Online Store

In fact, I will be very suprised if you can find any other application
or website with "Store" in the title which isn't mainly for paid
applications. Center/Centre definitely suggests "control" over the
contents, not just purchasing.
