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.

The truth is, there's a reason why the PC spawned the computing revolution.

But... but... but... I've been told Apple started the computer revolution?!? ;-)

I LOL'd at your response. But to give Apple's PR machine credit, I was using the term PC generically to mean Personal Computer, and the Apple ][ was right in there with the rest of them. Apple has always straddled the line between user freedom and a "just works" ethos that's sometimes anathema to user freedom. The Apple ][ was freer, then the Mac backslid, then later Macs were freer, then iOS was a backslide.
