Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

And why shouldn't you? App Store is just an app like every other app. Cmd + Backslash and it's gone in less than a second (don't try it with Linux/Windows). After all it's not Windows where you have to hack the registry to get rid of MS specific apps. Also it doesn't affect the Mac performance in any way or annoys you with prompts and there are no background tasks running (maybe except the "check for updates" task).
