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.

How long before you need an Apple Developers ID to install Apps outside the App Store and I'm sure when that happens there will be a nice PR piece about it and Engadget and Cnet will tell us that ordinary people don't need to install non-App Store apps its only professionals that require that 'privilege'. TBH I don't care what they do by default just make it simple for me to setup my computer the way I want to use it without having to resort to the CLI and editing configuration files.
