And is alive and well in Apple's dominion, where NeXTStep's
application bundle design ("/Applications/program.app/") is seems
partially designed to facilitate shareware. (The icon used to launch
the program is the runtime data and is easily drag'n'dropped around
from user to user.)

Indeed, lots of hackers dropped GNU/Linux for Mac OS X these last 5 years... :-(
