Mac OS X "It's no longer possible to write a single app that takes advantage of the full range of Mac OS X features. Some APIs only work inside the Mac App Store. Others only work outside it. Presumably, this gap will widen as more new features are App Store-exclusive, while sandboxing places greater restrictions on what App Store apps are allowed to do." Anybody surprised by this, here's the clue stick. Please proceed to hit yourself with it.

No MacOS X for me.

I like Apple's design and the Mac OS X architecture, but somehow I am quite happy to be a Windows/UNIX user.

We as users need to make enough pressure so that other vendors do not follow Apple's footsteps.

I imagine that Apple's dreamworld is similar to what Games Console developers enjoy. Where every single application has to go through a certification process, after being able to get an approval from the console vendor.
