Microsoft Confirmes No Dev Payouts Till February

All those developers who busted their humps to get apps put together and ready for WP7’s launch have just been dealt a major blow: Microsoft has confirmed that they won’t get paid until February of 2011. In a post on the developer hub forum, a Microsoft Employee stated:

Payouts are slated to start in February, 2011.
This is surely set to piss off a number of developers who are eagerly awaiting paychecks from apps they worked hard to put together, but it turns out this was actually a known issue. Microsoft has said from day one that payouts won’t begin until February, but it’s still a hell of a wait for developers trying to account for hours spent crafting applications.
