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.

they haven't made a break from the past because either way WinRT is still dependent on win32 or at least parts of it.


They kept the parts around that made sense - or are you arguing Mac OS X wasn't a clean break because it still kept things like QuickTime, Desk Accessories, and more, from the MacOS days aound?
