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.

I've been a happy OSX user for years. But it seems more and more likely like this will be my last Mac.

Eventually Apple will only allow apps through the app store. I can understand it from a business point of view but I'm sure as hell not jumping on that bandwagon ;)
