    Is there a program like the SDK made by Apple that people on PC can use to make appstore apps?

    I highly doubt that will ever happen.
    Have you seen how well the AppStore is doing?

    It's because OSX contains same libs as iPhone OS, so it's easier to compile iPhone app in OSX then Windows.

    Remember also that Simulator is not emulator :> it simulates iPhone API so iPhone code runs on OSX on existing stuff

    Ofcorse compiling on windows is technically possible, but need a little more work on development tools (like porting OSX core libs... and Apple don't like that idea) ;p
