Mac OS X Over the weekend, a rumour spread like wildfire through Apple and Mac circles which stated that starting with Mac OS X 10.7, Apple would introduce the App Store model to the Mac, allowing only Apple-approved applications to run. It became apparent to me right away that this was a load of nonsense, and for once, I was right: Steve Jobs has personally dismissed the rumour.

Take away the silly ideas of 'no third party software', 'only Apple signed binaries can run, or 'can't install software by anyother means' and you are left with a pretty good idea.

Let's face it a good App Store for OS X that makes installing programs as easy as the iPhone or any Linux repository will ba a major one upmanship against the horror of installing Windows software (next, next, next, good damn install aready!, next, lying progress bar, next, adware and finish!).
