The Mac App Store has arrived

I've been playing with it for a little bit, and I've got to say -- I like it a whole lot more than I thought I would. The App Store paradigm works well for a computer (i.e. non-mobile) platform, and the Mac App Store is just as easy-to-use as its iOS counterparts. I'm excited to see just how quickly consumers will be attracted to the Mac platform because of the increased perception of available applications -- something that has been an issue (unfortunately undeserved) for OS X for a while now.

Also, an interesting change (though not entirely unexpected) -- "Mac OS X Software" in the system menu has now been changed to "App Store":

Now, we just need to get Quinn in there, and life will be that much more complete!
