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.

That is pretty shitty ... While I disagree with it I will have to point out when you buy an Apple Computer one buys it IMO for the integration between the hardware and the OS.

They support booting Windows because it is a common use case.
