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.

I'm not quite sure Linux will be a good refuge.

The designers at the biggest desktop Linux proponents (Gnome and Canonical) love copying all things Apple and Windows, so I wouldn't be surprised to see this sort of evolution there too.

(Yes, I've tried KDE, Xfce, LMDE and whatnot. I won't enter a discussion about this, I'm just not going to use those. Neither will Joe Sixpack.)
