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.

No. An Apple developer ID is $99.

It is free to register but it costs $99 if you want to publish it on the App Store and also wish to have access to the preview releases. If you sign up as I do you only get access to documentation, released versions of SDK's and that is about it.
