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.

Until someone actually bothers releasing it, with a 1% market share on the desktop don't count on it soon.

The reason why they are bringing out these app stores is because people have pirate software soo much in the last decade or so.

If you want to blame anyone it is those that have pirated software. I can either release software where people are going to pirate it endlessly or give MS/Apple a percentage and get guaranteed income if someone is going to use my software.
