    “There are no vendor neutral app stores for standalone SaaS applications” !

    Krish, please take a look at GetApp.com [www.getapp.com/], this is by far the largest SaaS app store, with over 4000 solutions organized in 300+ categories. Matching apps to a company needs can be done through very powerful filtering capabilities.
    A matching tool can only be built on tons of intelligence gathered from users behavior, which is what we have been doing over the last months.
    But the real point about a marketplace is neutrality and being platform/ app agnostic.
    In GetApp.com users can see how apps integrate with the main platforms and other apps, which is one of the most demanded functionality from users.

    One hopes that Rackspace has a way to keep the users of this service from lying about their age, as on Match.com. Seriously though, this seems like a good idea, and it will be interesting to see how and whether Rackspace is able to gain traction among both ISVs and users.
