New features of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
Authored by: Gleddit on Oct 25, '10 03:44:52AM

My worry is that the Mac App Store could be the end of my Mac being the best creative tool I use. I don't want to work on a giant iPad/iPod Touch.

Of more practical use to designers would be for Apple to stop using system fonts that have the same name as commercial fonts! You know really look at what users do with their systems, as a kind of thank you for supporting them through the dark years :)

Full screen apps and all the other bits just look like the latest Sales gimmick to me. I just want a fast system that loads quickly and doesn't beach ball.

There's enough in the world for all, never enough for one man's greed

how is the App Store going to affect what you do with your computer?

If anything you might find some new & useful creative tools that you didn't know existed before. Just stay out of the game categories ;)

I don't think that the Mac App Store will ever be the exclusive source of software for Mac. It would defeat the purpose of having a full desktop OS and I think Apple knows that. There will always be the option to get applications other places or write them yourself. I do think that some corporate types would like to have the option of putting workers on what amounts to a big iPad linked to a local company version of the App Store. It would be great for security and control. I just don't think that kind of model is in Apple's thinking.
