We won't know for sure until it officially comes out. But it looks like it. Not sure why you would want to do this, though. If you want Mountain Lion, why don't you want Lion?
I held off upgrading to Lion for a long time, I bit the bullet and I just upgraded to Lion 4 weeks ago and then find Mountain lion is being released. I feel ripped off.
How do you know they will even charge you for Mountain Lion? They haven't mentioned anything about price yet. Even if they do, that would probably be $30 for Lion, then $30 for MLion. Still cheaper than the $100+ price tag on previous versions of OS X (or Windows).
Also: Consider that MLion won't be out until "later summer" (September). So that is 7 months away. Plenty of time to get your $30 out of Lion.
Apple seems to be becoming more like Microsoft with their OS releases. I am still running Leopard and will not upgrade because too many of the peripherals I use are not supported in the later versions of the OS (PowerPC drivers). I use these peripherals in my business and cannot afford to be without them. Leopard still works just fine, thank you.
Will the new features of MLion, like reminders, gatekeeper, notification center also become available without me having to upgrade to MLion?
No. Some might, but certainly not most. Think about it: If they would add the features of MLion to Lion, then what would be the point of MLion?
How does Gatekeeper impact software updates that need to be done regularly in an educational setting but you still want to keep students from downloading app? do you have to go into each computer and change the setting to sign apps and then go back and turn it off. If so this is not efficient for school district and rathe cumbersome.
Not sure. I don't think you would use Gate Keeper in that situation because there are probably other restrictions for downloading software already in place.
Will I be able to upgrade my iMac from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion without having upgraded to Lion first?
