If true, a report from high-level developers, Rixstep, warns that "Developers planning on marketing software for Apple's MacOS 10.7 will submit their products to the App Store as iPhone and now iPad developers have already done". Apparently, OS 10.7 will have kernel support for ('insistence on') binaries signed with Apple's root certificate. This certificate will prevent any software that isn't approved and signed by Apple to work on the computer.
