Steve Jobs Says: 'Nope' to Approved Only Apps for Mac OS 10.7

Steve Jobs was recently asked about the rumor of a Mac App Store for OS X 10.7.

-----
Hey Steve,

There's a rumor saying there will be a Mac App Store and no software without authorization from Apple will run on Mac OS X. Is that true?

-----

Nope.

-----

Unfortunately, Job's short reply doesn't fully address the rumors. Apple could still offer authorized applications through a Mac App Store without blocking applications that are distributed directly.

That kinda stuff will never happen for the OS X platform. I think it's the rumor of some crazy fella just to mix things up.

"Apple could still offer authorized applications through a Mac App Store without blocking applications that are distributed directly." So you're saying that they can still offer an AppStore for the Mac/Macbook, with approved signed applications ON TOP of what we already have now? I don't see what's wrong with that. You could always not use it if you worry about not being able to pirate the apps.

I like how Apple has organized the App store they have now. I like to read reviews and see what popular applications are from normal people. I think it would be a good idea yes as long as its not locked down like the iPhone OS.
