Apple has enabled system wide sharing which now enables sharing of links, photos, videos and other files. Additionally, the Dictation feature has been borrowed from the new iPad, and it allows the user to dictate text anywhere irrespective of the app developer.

And finally the Gatekeeper feature has been tailored to enhance security on OSX. With Gatekeeper enabled, users can either lock themselves to downloading apps exclusively from the Mac App store or have the best of both worlds by having the option of downloading the apps from the Mac App store and from developers with registered Apple IDs. If one likes to play it old school then the user can disable Gatekeeper and can download apps from the web or the Mac App store.

Apple has clarified that consumers who buy the new MacBook Pro or the new MacBook Air computers will be eligible for a free upgrade to OSX Mountain Lion.
