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.

Whether you are anti-apple or not it is largely irrelevant.

There is a safe default for people for the majority of users, if you want to run non-signed applications you can turn it off and it informs you of the risks.

Apple is in the business in making their computers easy to use by their customers, and keep the "techy stuff outta the way unless you need it".

Unfortunately nonsense like you wrote here is just you panicking.
