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, no, and also, uhmmm, oh yeah NO.

I bought the mac because it was BSD underneath with a usable interface and had a wide support of open source software installed by default. For those who like to tinker, it was pretty good. Lots of hidden options, sure, but they were easily modifiable with a text editor.
