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.

There are other ways of doing it, like when they dropped support for Carbon in Lion.

No need to have certain APIs AppStore only.


When did they drop support for Carbon in Lion? last time I checked Microsoft Office 2011 was still a predominantly a Carbon application along with Adobe's Creative Suite too.
