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.

Errrr... you don't really answered bouhko question, he didn't asked if he can or not install a application. It's about the scaring factor imposed by Apple on common users installing a non approved application.

You don't need to have an AppleID - you can continue installing that haven't been digitally signed.

You forgot the ",for now" in the end...

Someone who accepts developing and aggregate value for a platform that imposes a form of light corporate censorship quietly, will also accept to lose some more rights just as quietly.
