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.

I wanted to hate the App Store (probably been reading this site too much... ;) but honestly... I mean, a few icons have moved position, big deal. It does what it sets out to do, if it offends your eyes remove it from the dock.

I browsed about and found 2 new (free) apps I was interested in and I installed them with no drama, and pleased I did. I'm on the verge of laying out money for a 3rd I discovered that otherwise would have gone unnoticed to me. So the developer is a winner too.

I agree if you don't want it, you should be able to uninstall in an easier fashion than perhaps currently, but apple/macos is by no means the worst OS in this regard.

I'm a command line junkie for the majority of my work and home computing on linux and mac. However I'm more than happy to use anything that makes life simple and easy. app store fits that model.
