Re: Apple may dump the Mac Pro?
said by HiVolt:There's been zero evidence to show that Apple would completely restrict what apps are installed on their desktops and laptops. Just because there's Launchpad, which gives your computer a bit of an iOS-like feel, a small but vocal group have been panicking that Apple's going to totally lock down the machine. Let it go. said by djrobx:
High end movie studios and designers use them and are generally willing to spare no expense to get premium performance. They don't want a consumer toy.
To me, it looks like Mac OS is heading towards being a consumer toy, aka iOS for the desktop with similar restrictions. Maybe not totally restricted in 10.8, but I can see it in the future not being able to install apps not from the Mac App Store.
You're so vain... I bet you think this post is about you.
