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.

AFAIKT Apple only supports the last 2 OSX versions with updates. So all people who want to still use Snow Leopard and don't want to pay for the upgrades are fracked. Right?

Edit: It seems Apple hasn't issued any updates for SL since last summer. So they were already boned.
So essentially you HAVE TO buy new versions of OSX every year.
