Mac OS X Ars Technica is reporting that certain 64bit Mac models won't be able to run Mountain Lion. The problem is the graphic card drivers; these are still 32bit, and Apple is unwilling to update them to 64bit. A 64bit kernel can't load 32bit drivers, so that's that. Apple has a list of supported models on their Mountain Lion upgrade page, so you can easily check if your computer is capable of running Mountain Lion.

I know your comment was meant as bait, but yeah that might be an option for some. Another option would be to pass on Mountain Lion, and yet another would be to sell the Mac and buy a current generation i5/i7 Windows machine. You could even install a 64-bit GNU/Linux OS or a BSD alongside Windows and get your *nix on that way.

As for me? Well, my only Mac runs system 7.5.3 and boots in 10 seconds. ;)
