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.

It was a good day, Friday, to see that my system will no longer be supported in 10.8 (Macbook Pro 2,2 w/X1600).

It took 2 solid days of mucking with mbr, gpt, grub2, and grub2-efi to get a good partitioning scheme that will boot on Apple's goofy EFI implementation in legacy mode with working video (X1600 does NOT play nice in efi mode), but here I am on Monday with Fedora 16 x86_64 fully functional.

No more App Store silliness. I have been meaning to do this for a long while, and this is just th push I needed.
