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.

But they are the same? So why do you find it confusing?

It's not advanced enough applications for you?

Only applications written in C and assembler counts, everything else is "scripts"? ;)

They are the same technically, but not functionally. If a hospital developes an application, that's meant for internal use, to aid hospital personal, or at most to interface with the "customers" via a webportal. If a hospital develops an app, that's for use by "customers" for their personal use (but with functionality linked to the hospital's function). That's a whole world of difference.

Splitting some hairs there, don't ya think? If I write a program, It can be called a program, an application, an app, a proggy, or whatever. It's still just a bit of executable code that runs when called.

That's... not what those words mean.

You've come to think of it that way, but those definitions have no relation to the reality of their origins or uses.

Why does it mean that? Why can't a hospital develop one for their patients / anyone?

Which kinda is what they did, if you found it confusing be cause it wasn't internal ;)
