Björnke, thanks for the link!

I predicted here in this forum a couple years back this would happen on the
Mac. Apple would end up being the Gatekeeper of all the allowed software on
anyone's computer.

And, soon, just like it happened with Windows Vista, folks will just get
used to turning Gatekeeper OFF (or option-clicking to launch apps) until it
just becomes second nature-- sort of like command-Z for UNDO.

How ironic does Ridley Scott's 1984 commercial seem today? More than
anyone, Apple has mutated itself into Big Brother.
