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.

Which is wrong, there is no restriction, even if you don't switch to the "Allow anything" setting.


With an opt-out switch. I said, with an opt-out switch. Opt-out. Like I said, it's in the article.

Which is wrong, there is nothing to "force" to install an unsigned application and you are prompted a grand total of one time if you're sure you want to run an unsigned application.


Exactly... You have to right-click and FORCE an install. Like I said, it's in the article.

Look, the article's fact are 100% correct, because they're copied almost verbatim from Engadget and The Verge. You may not like the opinions and/or predictions in the article, but that's no reason to claim I'm lying or being an anti-Apple troll - especially since the article clearly targets Microsoft as well.

This utter bullshit about me being anti-Apple has to stop. I'm not anti-Apple - I'm anti-anyone who employs the kind of business tactics Apple and Microsoft employ. Apple makes some great products (every review I've ever written makes that very clear) but the company's practices are rotten.

I'm free to think that and explain why I think that without being labelled an anti-Apple troll every time. Not everyone approves of your pet company's tactics. Deal with it.
