Mac OS X "Apple today released Mac OS X 10.6.6 which which increases the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac. What's also very important in this release is the introduction of the long-awaited Mac App Store with more than 1,000 free and paid apps. The Mac App Store offers apps in a variety of categories. Users can browse new and noteworthy apps, find out what’s hot, see staff favorites, search categories and look up top charts for paid and free apps, as well as user ratings and reviews." Anyone else bothered by the incredibly shoddy user interface? What the heck is up with the entirely messed up placement of the titlebar widgets? If you ever needed proof the Mac OS X team has become a ghost town thanks to iOS, this is it.

App Store is good

I don't get the criticism. The App Store is very similar to the iTunes App Store, very easy to understand, good descriptions of the applications available, sorted into categories, couldn't be easier to buy with your Apple ID. I know some people hate iTunes, call it the worst piece of software ever, etc, without giving any specifics as to why it is supposed to be bad. I find it incredibly easy to use, ad I do the App Store. Lest anyone call me an Apple fanboy simply because I like this software, I must disclose that I use a Windows 7 machine the majority of the time.

So I must ask for specifics as to what the author of this post meant when he mentions "the incredibly shoddy user interface" without any specifics, the "entirely messed up placement of the titlebar widgets" without any explanation or example, and that "the Mac OS X team has become a ghost town thanks to iOS" comment without any example. Talk about flamebait, this post is a perfect example of how NOT to write an article. Simply making accusations without giving any basis or explanation does not work.
