    So, Mac App Store says 1 OSX update available.

    I see it's the RAW compatibility package, so I click "upgrade"

    Then I see it also says ", iTunes 11"

    Too late.

    I DID NOT WANT ITUNES 11.

    This is BS. With Software Update one could choose which components to install, and Mac App Store gave the impression it was the same.

    It did not behave that way for me. I clicked the update and it expanded to show the individual components.

    I clicked "update". I did not know you could expand an update, much less that an item could be multiple.

    If you click the upgrade button itself, it'll start without expanding. I did the same thing :-(

    It's not sneaky, just poorly designed. 'Sneaky' implies they put any thought into it.

    I also hate the way they don't show how big an update will be until you start downloading it. It's not exactly superfluous information, and would hardly hurt anyone or anything to quote the file size, like they always did/do on their website for update downloads, and indeed in the Software Update app window.
