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.

Ok, last time I commented it was over Thom's political rantings. Gave OSNews a break. Come back and find this. My god, if Thom hates so much about his Mac why the heck is he using one? Sure, Apple does things that I don't always approve of, and the UI of the App Store is pretty bad. But the utter disdain in his article makes me feel like he'd be better off not using a Mac, or at the very least stop writing about them.

I miss the early days of OSNews. Quality reporting and journalism.

Because up until the Mac App Store, Apple only had their iOS devices to dictate. The concern I have is if developers make enough money selling applications with this distribution method, eventually this will be the default way of buying all OS X software.

I do not want this to be the only way to buy applications in the future...I want a choice of where I buy things.

I could not agree more, if that happens then I will be looking elsewhere. But that's not something Thom addressed in his rant...
