Steve Jobs Says No Mac App Store In OS X 10.7

One of the greatest weapons of Apple’s iPhone is its well-populated App Store. So far, not even Google’s Android Market has been able to beat Apple’s online mobile store, but the search engine giant is certainly doing a good job of catching up. This, along with the price change in the Mac developer license led to speculation that Apple would be considering coming up with an App Store for OS X too. And if you take into account the incredible success of the App Store, it’s not hard to believe that such a thing could happen. That being said, Steve Jobs has apparently replied an email to a user, denying (in his usual short email style) that OS X 10.7 will be getting an App Store, effectively quashing the rumors (for the time being at least). Would you be happy if there were an App Store for OS X, or are you perfectly content with the way you install software on your Mac now?
