People WILL blame Apple? You do realize that the non-app store situation is the status quo. In other words people SHOULD ALREADY be railing against Apple if this was the case.
However, this isn't the case. If someone releases a program that sucks it gets poor reviews. Even if it gets mixed reviews, one can always delete an app. It's really easy. Sure, it could be made easier, but a LOT less costly than 30%.
The problem Steve has is it's the Mac community's...
