    Does the Applications folder have to be on the same volume as OS X in order to be recognized as the "official" Apps folder? Or, is it possible to move it to another drive and have OS X recognize it as the Apps folder?

    i think it has to be there, but nothing is stopping you from putting the apps on a different disk and having the 'official' applications folder merely be an alias to your real one
