Apple reveals the name and the general aim of the next OS X release. OS X Mountain Lion aims at bringing features from the iPhone and iPad to the Mac desktop.
"We see that people are in love with a lot of apps and functionality on an iPhone. Anywhere where that makes sense, we are going to move that over to Mac," said Tim Cook in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.
The first early developer version of OS X Mountain Lion will be released to developers today. End users will get OS X Mountain Lion in late summer.
One of the big features coming to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion from the iPhone is the notification screen. Other features will include direct iCloud integration, AirPlay Mirroring, iOS apps like contacts, reminders and more.
John Gruber (Daring Fireball) got a private presenation of OS X Mountain Lion from Tim Cook. Pretty cool move by Apple to brief their most prominent fanboys.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
