Resourceful users have found a way get paid Mac App Store apps for free

Apple loves to brag about numbers, so it should come as no surprise that the boys from Cupertino are overjoyed by the news that the newly launched Mac App Store crossed the one million downloads mark in just 24 hours.

"We're amazed at the incredible response the Mac App Store is getting," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "Developers have done a great job bringing apps to the store and users are loving how easy and fun the Mac App Store is." 

The Mac App Store provides users a simplified way of searching for, purchasing, and installing OS X applications. Anyone that is familiar with the App Store for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad would feel right at home using the complimentary service for his or her MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air.

Interestingly enough, even though Apple's Mac App Store seems to be off to a good start, it still has it problems. Many users were getting an "error 100" message when trying to access the store early yesterday. The only way to clear the message for many users was to Log Out of their current session of OS X and log back in.

Even more troubling is that fact that some paid apps can be easily pirated by downloading the .dmg files from the internet and using a "purchase" receipt from a free app.

Now this I can totally agree with. It's not that you can't do what you want in Windows 7, but they made a lot of it more complicated than necessary for seemingly no reason. I'd rather they not copy OS X myself. If I wanted OS X I'd get a Mac.
