Mac OS X Over the weekend, a rumour spread like wildfire through Apple and Mac circles which stated that starting with Mac OS X 10.7, Apple would introduce the App Store model to the Mac, allowing only Apple-approved applications to run. It became apparent to me right away that this was a load of nonsense, and for once, I was right: Steve Jobs has personally dismissed the rumour.

Unlikely, Apple has sued websites for publishing leaked information on upcoming products, not for publishing false rumors. There are always a lot of rumors around Apple, some are proven false, and AFAIK Apple hasn't sued anyone for publishing them.

It's more likely that this rumor was created by anti-apple fanboys who hate apple's customer lock-in.
