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.

Finally, as for iOS owing its success to its App Store, I'm again quite skeptical. The first iPhone sold extremely well without having it, and Unix repositories, which are extremely close ancestors, have never allowed the Linux desktop to get a strong foothold outside of the corporate world, so I'm not sure there is a clear-cut relationship between both.
