Apple unveils Mac App Store Earlier today during the "Back to Mac" event, Apple unveiled its upcoming Mac App Store, an applications store based on the store available to owners of iOS devices.
The Mac App Store will give Mac owners a chance to download Mac applications with one-click.

Additionally, the store will provide auto-updates and a license to use the software on all Macs you may own.

For developers, Apple takes 30 percent of revenue, similar to the cut the company takes for iOS apps.

To access the store you will need Mac OSX Snow Leopard or the upcoming Lion.

Developers can begin submitting applications next week and the Mac App Store will open in 90 days.

This could make a major change in how software is distributed and mark the beginning of the end of bloat ware.
