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.

Well we can't blame this particular issue on Jobs' absence as it was already in the planning stages before he died. But there are some decidedly negative vibes coming from the company these days. One in particular is Apple's decision to no longer seek EPEAT certification for any current and future products. I doubt he would have allowed that to happen.
