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.

That's not the point of the change. The point is that they want control over the APIs that are being used.

You actually believe this

They obviously want to have tight quality control over applications. The downside is that developers freedom is considerably reduced.
I don't really mind though, as long as apple doesn't do all it can to make itself impossible to avoid the way microsoft did.
