Apple "A new report suggests that Apple may be planning to eliminate retail boxed software from its Apple Stores, instead focusing on promoting the Mac App Store for software sales. This is indeed a trend that Apple has been pushing for a while, but not all the software that Apple sells would necessarily be a great fit for pure digital distribution."

Convenient way to control competition

I'm not surprised. This is just Apple tightening its grip on its loyal user base. Without boxed copies of OSX on store shelves, the 'Hackintosh' will go the way of the Dodo and users of older Macs will find it easier to simply purchase newer ones when OSX is updated. It's another win-win for Apple and another nail in the self-built coffins of its users.
