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.

Not only is QT bad, but they continue to try and sneak it into my system whenever I install Safari or iTunes on a Windows PC.

Here's a tip: put an abstraction layer in there and use the platform's native systems, which are working just fine and dandy.

Back on topic: this App-Store-limitation galore that is going on is not just affecting the average users, but us developers as well. A lot.
