RE: Newbie Can't open Oscar
I don't know my way around Macs. There should be a way to install or open it despite this warning. OSCAR is safe, but you have to convince your computer it is.

RE: Newbie Can't open Oscar
Control + Click should get you a context menu that opens (Right Click works for me also).  From the context menu select Open.  That should get OSCAR started.  Then you may get a popup asking is you want to give OSCAR permission to access your files which you have to say yes too.

There is a link to the Mac install wiki in my signature that may help.

Apple keeps adding more safety features we need to jump through to get things working.

OK, so I got it. FYI, the issue was that I wasn't using Finder, but Pathfinder.
