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."

Who cares about it, if so far anyone can install apps on MacOS freely. If Apple will turn MacOS into something like iOS with draconian control policies - it would be a good incentive for users to dump MacOS altogether and to switch to free platforms.
