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.

As long as you do not state a date, it is mere FUD. One cannot falsify it, as Popper would say. Let you be liable to statements like "you predicted that at this time something would happen and it has not" or otherwise just let Apple do whatever they want and just comment and not spread misinformation.

If you allow yourself that kind of statements, do not complain of Microsoft saying "you cannot do real work on Linux" or Apple saying "Android is doomed to disappear" or me saying "OS X is just a bunch of badly glued GUI funny ideas".

At least the "real work" is something one can argue. One cannot argue on the future, though.

This way you always win: you are never wrong and that is not fair when you accuse someone of misbehaving.
