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.

1) Thom is complaining about the end user's rights, not developers per se.

2) What flash download are you referring to?

3) Making Metro applications installable only via Marketplace is something to complain and wail about. I want to be able to write apps and install aps without going through a gate keeper. Bob Marley is a good suggestion, though. Maybe something like "Get up, Stand up". There is a time to chill, and a time to protest as Bob well knew. Now is a time to protest.

"Come on Get Up, Stand Up, stand up for your right Get Up, Stand Up, don't give up the fight "
