Mac OS X Well, this is a surprise. Several websites have a preview up of Apple's next Mac OS X release - it's called Mountain Lion, and continues the trend of bringing over functionality from iOS to Mac OS X. Lots of cool stuff in here we've all seen before on iPhones and iPads, including one very, very controversial feature: Gatekeeper. Starting with Mac OS X 10.8, Apple's desktop operating system will be restricted to Mac App Store and Apple-signed applications by default (with an opt-out switch), following in Windows 8's footsteps.

Sure our Windows and Mac machines will be locked down... But that's why we buy them... My Mac needs to just work, I dont have time to worry about something going wrong with it, the same with my iPhone... If we want to do more fun stuff then we buy a Raspberry Pi or build a Linux machine.

Or at least this is how I do things! <shrug>
