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.

Sure there was.

There was a commonly used iOS app store before that AppStore arrived on the iOS scene? Now that is big news to me...

gaping holes leave a space for newer, more modern apps to spring up, apps that wouldn't have seen the light of day if the legacy app using obsolete code still was around.

And that would be the case if these restrictions would add something beneficial, like the move from Carbon to Cocoa. However, this move is ill thought-out and brings only new restrictions not functionality(as it stands today).
