The Mac App store has obviously been doing great, becoming the number 1 software store (probably because that includes free apps though...). There are over 5,000 apps in the Mac App store, but I still can't help but notice that after half a year there are still a lot of very notable exceptions. The entire suite of adobe CS5 (which is like 15 or so apps) Microsoft Office the big web browsers (firefox, chrome) All the other Apple apps (safari, itunes, iCal, etc). Yes I know they come with all macs, but what if you delete them? Also it would be easy to keep all those software updates in the Mac App Store 1Password I know there are a lot more apps, but those are just the first ones that jumped to mind. As a non developer, are some of these apps (like possibly 1Password) never going to be on the Mac App Store because the way they function prevents them from ever being able to follow its strict guidelines? Lastly, IF the big players like Microsoft and Adobe turn to the Mac app store do you think a) they will stop selling in store and b) will they lower the price by eliminating distribution costs?
