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.

What the hell are Apple doing? 10.7 has been out less than a year and it still sucks ass. Its soo frigging slow compared to Snow Leopard - its too early to think about releasing a 10.8 until the existing major bugs are fixed in 10.7....

They might as well have called 10.7 - Mac OS X Spinning Wheel.

Just take a look at sites like OSNews, AmigaWorld and probably others... "Is your MAC running slow?" adverts everywhere.

I am also concerned about locking us into this App-Store system permanently - "so-long free open source software!"
