Is anyone else concerned Apple will release a touch-screen iMac, and all future "touch" software will need to go through the iTunes store? If touch software ends up being more popular I see all development needing to go through the Apple development screening. I'm beginning to feel that if they could screen websites they'd do that too, oh wait. They do that too by limiting Flash.



The software wouldn't need to be touch, they could have a separate section for desktop apps.

Can you imagine the revenue stream for Apple if you could get desktop apps on iTunes?

I'm not at all concerned about it as they couldn't make it exclusive, people would run to windows... but they would still achieve a huge market share.

Maybe OS X 10.7?
