Mac OS X And so the iOS-ification of Mac OS X continues. Apple has just announced that all applications submitted to the Mac App Store have to use sandboxing by March 2012. While this has obvious security advantages, the concerns are numerous - especially since Apple's current sandboxing implementation and associated rules makes a whole lot of applications impossible.

Can you please update the article, it's misleading and misinformed.

The sandboxing requirement is not something new.
The initial deadline was November, it was pushed to March because apparently things aren't clear and some aren't ready.

Furthermore, yes there are drawbacks by making sandboxing mandatory across the board, however the benefits far outweigh the costs.

You clearly didn't read my article. Please read before accusing me of things, okay?

Graçias.

Graçias.


Just a comment; if what you wanted to say was "thanks" in Spanish, it is spelled "Gracias", with "c" instead of "ç". The "c con cedilla" ("ç") does not belong to the Spanish alphabet though "c" represents the same phonemes that "ç" when written with "e" or "i". In Spanish the "ç" has been substituted by "z" when used with a, o and u and by "c" when used with e and i.

Whatever, if you tried to say "thanks" in other language than Spanish, then forget my pedantic comment ;)

¡Gracias!
