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.

Totally agree SL was the best version of OS X the only improvements in Lion are the theme and the new Log in screen. Charging far more than competitors for their computers then selling incremental OS upgrades every year to users doesn't seem right to me.

Well when OS X started out I used every release from 10.0 to 10.4 on a 600Mhz iBook G3 and each release was faster on the same old laptop, up till 10.5 which was the first to run slower then the previous version.
