Apple Mac App Store Opens January 6 [apple.com]
|Apple today announced that the Mac App Store will open for business on Thursday, January 6. By bringing the revolutionary App Store experience to Mac OS X, the Mac App Store makes discovering, installing and updating Mac apps easier than ever. The Mac App Store will be available in 90 countries at launch and will feature paid and free apps in categories like Education, Games, Graphics & Design, Lifestyle, Productivity and Utilities. |
“The App Store revolutionized mobile apps,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We hope to do the same for PC apps with the Mac App Store by making finding and buying PC apps easy and fun. We can’t wait to get started on January 6.”

This could be a game changer for many software distribution outlets. Many people will like the convenience of purchasing their apps in one place and will forgo traditional software outlets.

If it works like the app store for my iPhone I think I'm gonna like this. Right now when you want an app, you search the 'net, browse the options, look for reviews, weed out the crappy sites/products, etc. The store for iPhone apps lets you read reviews, see screenshots, see what's popular, etc. all in an easy-to-use interface. I'm looking forward to checking this out.
