    If the iOS App Store has been evidence of anything, this isn't necessarily a good thing. The App Store will obviously garnish lots of attention, and will likely be the primary sales point for most Mac software within a few years. The problem I see is that the more use this App Store sees, the less power developers will have, as more and more people use the Mac App Store for their primary software needs. I would also be worried about the possibility of Apple closing off software sales outside of the App Store, which has been the primary policy regarding iOS applications since it's initial release.

    Here are the stats I see on our website (major financial institution):

    OS X: 100.00%
    Intel 10.6: 53.27%
    Intel 10.5: 31.25%
    Intel 10.4: 5.64%
    PPC 10.4: 4.78%
    PPC 10.5: 2.33%

    The remaining 2.73% is crap data.
