Apple Mac Store hits 10,000 apps

According to multiple third-party estimates, Apple's Mac App Store has hit is first major milestone, 10,000 available applications.
One source, Macrumor's Appshopper site, has the total at 10,334 while France's MacGeneration had a similar figure.

Apple opened the store in early 2011 to have a centralized area for applications available for the Mac OS X operating system. Last December, the company said they had reached 100 million downloads by users, making the store the "fastest growing PC software store in the world."

By comparison, it took Apple's iOS App Store 6 months to reach the milestone, along with 300 million downloads. Of course, the iOS App Store is the only way to "legally" get apps on iPhone/iPad devices while Mac users can download the software from a plethora of sites, include the software maker's own site (usually).

Well... I suppose that's cool.

I do have to admit, there are a few apps in the Apple realm that I wish made it to the Android side of the house. I suppose I'll still either have to wait or cry over my own bowl of puppy shit.
