It's being reported that the Mac App Store may be launching as soon as Monday, December 13th. This news comes from website AppleTell, who credits an "inside source."
If the rumor is to be believed, Apple actually told developers to have their software ready to launch on Monday the 6th (today), but according to their contact, it was unlikely that it would happen today. Apple's main goal, however, seems to a pre-Christmas launch in hopes of taking advantage of that holiday period (Hey, people want to spend those gift cards on something.).
We are stoked about the Mac App Store, and we think it's a cool way to pick up desktop applications. Games like Flight Control were announced soon after Apple showed off the Mac App Store at their most recent press event.
