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.

Monstrosity?

The only monstrosity is how OS/News is going down hill.

Thom was proven wrong even before he thought up this article. How many apps have been downloaded on iDevices? The MacStore is going to be just as popular percentage wise (taking into account the number of devices for each platform).

If you don't want it, drag it off the Dock by holding your mouse button down and dragging it up and then let go. My guess, even if you don't want to admit it, is that you'll be using the MacStore to get applications. Maybe not this week or next month but with a couple or a few months you will start getting more and more of your applications off the MacStore.

How about some real articles.

So it's popular.
Bush was voted into office at least once.

Popular != good.

Sounds like a frightening perspective, the way you say it ;)
