What is the App Sandbox and why is it a chore?

The App Sandbox is a great end user security concept. The Sandbox governs what an application can and cannot do. This means that a virally infected word processor, cannot go on to infect other applications nor rampantly damage files on the users disk. It can however affect files which the user has created or opened within the word processor.
