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.

I was replying to you not the previous poster.

Apple does make a ton of money off software, specially that which they don't make via the App Store... which gives then even higher profit margins. So your point regarding Apple not having an incentive to expand the user base for their OS could very well be incorrect, which is what I was pointing out.

But not from OSX, which was kinda the point.
