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.

Yeah... I have a 2007 macbok. No mountain lion for it. Not buying a new one, Its nice that things like netflix work, but I never got used to the *BSD userland I miss gnu when I'm on it. Plus, I'm not happy with the direction of the OS. Maybe I'll look into getting plasma active working on a transformer prime or something.

BSD userland is the real UNIX, although I also apreciate GNU better.

Everytime I had to admin a real UNIX box, one of my first tasks was to install some GNU tools to make my work somehow more pleasant.

This is nothing against BSD, rather against commercial UNIX systems which offer tools that were never changed since the System V days.
