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.

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.

Let's not start a linguistic war here, shall we? To the general public, "app" means something different than "computer program", and why shouldn't it?

Since you're one of the few here with this strange view, I wonder what you know about the general public? Your family?
If a member of the general public asks a sensible, knowledgeable, person what an "app" is, they will get the answer that "it's short for computer application, that is, a computer program" and the general public will answer "Aha! Nice to know!"

Nope.
False.

You don't get to just _decide_ what the majority thinks.
