Just within an hour of release, it's already filled with ratings by hypercritical people.

ETA2: Where is the home button in the app store? Featured items is the home button?
http://store.apple.com

Or do you want to download more ram to your computer?

It's an APP store. Not a 'everything' store.

I'd be having a look at your system, as I said my system is near identical specs to yours and the Mac App Store runs fast and fluidly here.

Not sure what you mean by that.
Also curious about the multiple macs thing. I've bought my MBP with iLife 09 installed. Does this mean it will transfer over to my older iMac which still has iLife 08?

So any price comparisons on existing applications? Thanks.

That's Lion (although apps can implement their own full screen modes if they want).

More stable and responsive. Naming Faces is easier, more editing options, minimal stupid bugs, no beachballs, smooth scrolling on first run through of photos and events (doesn't need to build thumbnail cache or does it much better than iPhoto), much more reliable and stable importing of photos - just so much better

That's Lion, but iPhoto already has it.

Basically, it's something apps CAN put in now if they want to, but Lion will make it standard by changing the green button to do it everywhere.

It could be an everything store. Just put some tabs on the top:

Apps| Hardware | Liquor | Blenders | Appliances | Hookers & Blow

Isn't that the way it has always been? The Applications in your Home folder are just your locally installed apps for the use only (root->Users->[user]->Applications) but the Applications folder in the sidebar is the system applications folder for everybody (root->Applications).

Read the Pixelmator forum. The version on the Appstore is newer than the last upgrade to be found on the website. Now all activities are moving to the Appstore.

And you don't really have any idea of what differences there are between 10.5 and 10.6 which prevent apps being easily back-ported.

That's how it will work for apps you buy on the app store from now on. They work with your iTunes log in account, not with a serial number.

That won't affect software you already own, though, so your iLife won't change.

(Although iLife doesn't have a serial number...think about that for a minute. I'm not gonna say any more than that.)

Nothing's changed. Mac OS has always been like that.

You've installed some apps to the system Application folder and others to your user account Application folder.

You know when an application asks you if you want to install the app for "All Users on this Computer" or for "Only This User"? "All Users" installs in the systems Application Folder and "This User" installs in your current user's Application folder.

Are apps tied to the logged in user? Say my username is zorin, and I buy an app, and another user named sarah logs in, and tries to run the apps I bought; will she be able to run them?

I guess I could just test this but I'm lazy.

What's the difference between the normal update and the combo update? I ran the software update on my mac and it downloaded the normal update only. Seeing as how there is an 800-900mb between the two, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything important.

The side bar of the finder windows? That is the same application folder.

Applications and Users are at the same directory level.

THIS is the biggie. Ok...so he gets the app store on 10.5. How happy will he be when 90% of the apps in there won't run on his machine?

I bet he'd be complaining even louder then.

Normal = You have 10.6.5 and only need what's changed between that and 10.6.6.
Combo = You have something older and need the stuff you've missed by not getting the older updates.

I'd like to see it go quite the other way. Take the music store out of iTunes and stick a Music section in this new store app. Or for that matter, have a separate Music Store app, like on the iPhone.

Then iTunes can get back to being just about your library. Maybe even take the whole iPod/iPhone/iPad syncing aspect out of it and make another program that handles syncing and mobile app management. Then iTunes becomes an ancillary program to that, like iPhoto is to iTunes now.
