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.

hey, QT doesn't break as many rules as this app does. QT doesnt center the window buttons!


And what exactly is wrong with centering the window controls, especially on a Mac where they're never going to be stuck to a screen corner? I know they control the window itself rather than program functions, so they shouldn't be confusable with action buttons, but looking completely different, being a matched set, having their color set system-wide, and reserving the leftmost area should be enough to accomplish that.

And as for the other most common complaint - that back/forward match the title bar's color - again, what's actually wrong with that? The App Store is a prepared content showcase, much like a physical Apple Store, and making the app itself look boring (like an all-white room) is an effective way to put emphasis on the items on display.
