Mac OS X Now that the Mac App Store has been snuck installed onto your machine alongside Mac OS X 10.6.6, you might be wondering - is there some way to remove that monstrosity of an application from my Mac? While it's not officially supported, it does seem like Apple has taken this scenario into account.

This is a bit like removing Windows Update from Windows. I just don't see how recovering 15MB makes a difference.

I don't think of iTunes as a music player and App Store as an inconvenience. I think of them as core pieces of OS X. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think removing them is really asking for a problem somewhere down the line.

You got it wrong! It's about freedom to remove everything. I bought it, it's my product, I can do whatever I want. Reason why Linux is so Awesome is because I can remove kernel and stuff, That's the Power of Open Source! Apples evil businessmen are trying to force us use all kind stuff, but choosing Linux I can do whatever I want because Linux is so Awesome.

I think you're trying to be sarcastic but I can't really tell.
