Taking All Bets

With the massive success of the iTunes App Store (over 3 billion apps downloaded), I think it's safe to assume the next version of OS X will include an App Store for Mac software.

The question is:

How many iterations of OS X will it take before Mac software can only be distributed (without "jailbreaking") through the App Store, thus ensuring Apple gets their cut of all Mac software sales?

I think none.

What I think is more likely is that Mac OS X will be "discontinued," and the replacement will have an App Store in which Apple gets a cut of all sales.

If they do this, I can see it happening in 5-10 years, which would be ~3-6 versions.
