One source, Macrumor's Appshopper site, has the total at 10,334 while France's MacGeneration had a similar figure.
Apple opened the store in early 2011 to have a centralized area for applications available for the Mac OS X operating system. Last December, the company said they had reached 100 million downloads by users, making the store the "fastest growing PC software store in the world."
By comparison, it took Apple's iOS App Store 6 months to reach the milestone, along with 300 million downloads. Of course, the iOS App Store is the only way to "legally" get apps on iPhone/iPad devices while Mac users can download the software from a plethora of sites, include the software maker's own site (usually).
