If you've ventured into the CrackBerry BlackBerry PlayBook forums lately, you've no doubt seen some threads discussing the app situation on the BlackBerry PlayBook.

No matter how you feel about the situation, there is a new thread in the forums from biggulpseh that seeks to offer a good explanation of what the situation is at the heart of the matter and when it all will be addressed.
The secret sauce as they say will be Cascades.
