In a bit of a double-whammy of operating system news today, word comes that Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion has gone gold. Apple released the Golden Master (GM) to developers earlier today, and if all goes to plan this is the same version that will be released to retail later this month. The build is 12A269, which is unsurprisingly is only slightly higher than Developer Preview 4, as Apple has quickly wrapped up their work.

For retail users, as per Apple’s earlier announcement the retail release of 10.8 is still expected this month. It will retail for $20.

    So why is Windows8 not going to cost $20? But $40~100 depending on when you buy it.

    Oh well, Win8 - so bad, almost nobody will bother pirating it.
