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.

Because otherwise

In Mac OS X 10.9, the master switch and force-install will be ever harder to find or relegated to CLI commands - after which it is removed completely.

is just as moot and FUD as any other statement. Like 'linux desktops are are crap' or something.

If you do not set a specific time in the future when Gatekeeper will disappear then you will always be true.

I can win also: Linux will fail in the end. And BSD, for that matter. And Windows and OS X.
