Rant

OSX Gatekeeper

Gatekeepr without 'Anywhere' sucks! Who does Apple think they are that they can prohibit me (the computer owner) from choosing 'Anywhere' and downloading anything I want; without interference from Apple? Are they going to tell me what web sites I am allowed to visit? Are they going to limit the time I can spend on my Mac?
Gatekeeper without Anywhere is insulting!

I'm reading this article.

So Apple allows you to turn it off and take the risk. Here's the awful truth. Most folk do not want to get infected so Apple created this to keep folk safe.

You control this app so I'm unsure what your complaint is here. Are you asking Apple to not shield the rest of us?

Gatekeeper without "Anywhere" sucks,

to a certain extent I will agree with you and, surprisingly, Apple agrees with you too.
That's why they gave you the option to choose "Anywhere"

You are in no way prohibited from doing any of the things you mentioned, which makes me wonder what the purpose of this Rant actually is.

Bob's link has more details as to how Gatekeeper works.

Simple trick

Type 'sudo spctl --master-disable' in the Terminal without the surrounding apostrophes and then you should be able to put it on Anywhere again.
