    I wanted to point out the road taken by Apple that I don't share.
    That is, the absolute paucity of apps on the Mac App Store, especially
    professional applications, but generally the littleness of applications compared
    to iOS, and Moreover many outdated applications for years!!!
    That's very bad.
    The road is marked for unsigned software, ok.
    they're doing it step by step....ma not so much.. ...
    in the next release macOS 10.13 i am convinced that WILL ELIMINATE the the possibility to download and install unsigned software,ok.
    Apple, Microsoft ... etc ... This is the next step, it closed vision!
    But in the same time , soon, I hope soon in a revolution of MacAPPStore, otherwise it would be a mess!
    Apple Have to agree soon with various software companies, and put on the mac App Store professional apps such as:
    Office, Adobe suite, Maya, Modo, Rhino ... ... ... et cetera, et cetera, just so it makes sense the store having a single download center and upgrade.
    Do not go on a thousand different sites, and eliminating for sure (in macOS 10.13) can install unsigned software.
    OK, but put thousands of apps and always up to date on
    MacAppStore, same to iOS !!!! please!!!
    It takes a revolution, I want to send this signal of change
    because as it is now the situation is very bad.

    Many large developers don't want to give apple 30% of their proceeds, plus the review process is such that the have to adhere to using (or avoiding) a number of APIs or accessing the hardware a certain way.

    Also Apple does not provide a way to pay for upgrades, its the same price whether you own the prior version or don't.

    How do you exactly send a signal to apple on this?

    If that's the case, then I'll not be upgrading, because I want the ability to load the apps I choose, and not be forced into using the MAS

    There is a rich world of applications available outside of the MAS, in fact the quality and quantity is so much better, and closing that off, will only hurt not help apple

    i agree.
    say this to Apple!
    From OS X Mountain Lion to Sierra, step after step , apple is going to close the entire software environment...remember, non with Sierra only with terminal hack it's possible to install unsigned software.
    Secure with next MacOS 10.13 apple close put end to unsigned software ! secure!
    In addition, Apple says the ways are Mac App Store..and identified developers!!
    Apple needs to explain which method identifies or choose a developer
    as identified or not. According to what criteria.
    because tomorrow morning for example if a developer is obnoxious,
    just for a preconception sign him as unidentified, this is not democracy but dictator ship.
    Return to the speech of the Mac App Store, she says that the big developers
    give a rate of 30% on sale of the software to Apple.
    But if they do the smaller developers, why wouldn't they do it big developers ??(on Mac App Store there are small developers).
    Also you could make sure that the software on the Mac App Store is rented out or entire suites divided into individual applications to reduce the price to the end users. In short, there are solutions.
    If not, I repeat, then it was wrong in principle the creation of the Mac App Store.
    Then Apple killed the Mac App Store ...
    This intermediate situation is no good for anyone.

    Microsoft allowed Office to be purchased with the 30% in the iOS store. But on year 2, Apple charged again and got 100% and Microsoft had no record of payment. It was a known bug with a few people and no chance to get refunded. I will never do an Office subscription thru Apple ever again.
