Mac OS X "No surprise that Apple's new Mac App Store has a similar set of rules and regulations as the iPhone App Store, and we just got the full list. There's nothing here that's too different from the iPhone review guidelines, but it all seems terribly odd when applied to a regular computer, and some of the more restrictive policies have already drawn ire from developers like Mozilla's Director of Firefox Mike Beltzner, who says the restriction against beta code won't work well with the Mozilla 'open beta' development process."

Anything it's fair as long as AppStore won't be the only way to install apps, like on the iPhone/Pad.

Unless that happens, this could be a good way to ensure high-quality application or apps which respect specific requirements/design guidelines.

Of course, some of those requirements seem to be aimed to kick competitors out but until OS is open that would be just a matter of company policy.
