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.

Well, you're perfectly right. I'm also using Linux as one of my OS and it works just fine. No need to become a slave to some corps, give out your rights, sell your soul to devil, give them your child, pay rediculous amount of money, and let them load you with ADs.

Of course, to keep it that way we need to stay focused and fight for it when endangered.

The problem is that people used to think they can't be free, they sell their privacy for 'free' services, etc.
