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.

I've been very happy with Snow Leopard. It looks like Apple is doing its best to make sure pro users have no more interest in their products.

$100 says Mac sales start a fairly rapid decline.

Looks like the end of the line for mainstream general purpose computing. I think most geeks will be going ARM soon. Raspberry Pi is just the beginning. Dual and quad-core ARM boards with similar goals and more potent GPU's will follow.

ARM SBC's will become the next wave of the home computer.
