I think you were joking right?
It'll be an issue for enterprise if Apple requires updates to be done through the App Store. With hundred+ computers, software updates can bog down the entire company's internet. It's much faster, and more efficient, to run a local software update server -- something that has been very easy to do until now. We'll have to see how this changes things, but I'm hopeful Apple won't have screwed businesses yet again.

Question for those who installed Messages, does it support screen sharing like iChat used to do? I use it a lot (family tech support guy :P ), and would hate to lose it...

It's not supported with an iMessage account, but it appears to be available for AIM etc.

I thought we could already do that with Snow Leopard?

I am so surprised by today's announcement, I wasn't expecting that at all. I am extremely happy about the new apps that will become available with Mountain Lion. I was hoping that Messages would happen and it did. I was also hoping for Notifications and it is going to happen as well. I am happy with the direction of OS X.

I read about the new Notifications and I understand correctly the way it works, I am not happy. The one thing I hated with Windows was that Outlook and Skype kept popping up these bubbles in the middle of whatever you were doing, embarrassing you in front of your audience if you were in the middle of a presentation or something.

To me it looks like Notifications does exactly that and I do not want it. If there is an option to completely disable Notifications (or disable it from showing the content in a bubble over whatever else you might be ding), than I am for it. The problem is, that stupid bubble does not disappear either - you have to clck on the Close button for that!

Or have I misunderstood how it is supposed to work?

Cheers

And a list of Macs that won't make the grade:

Mountain Lion signals end of OS X support for older Macs

My late 2006, 5.5 year-old MBP (which can only access 3GB of RAM, which makes it a bit creaky at times on Lion) isn't on the list - but some early 2008 MBAs and late 2008 MBs with integrated graphics are.

I'll just have to come up with some other excuse to justify that new lappie...
