Sort of a noob question about GM

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Do I need a developer account to install ML? I'm using 10.7.2 right now w/o any problem.


Should I wait for the official release? If I install GM, will it expire? And will I be able to update it to the official version when out?

The GM (Golden Master) is the final version of OS X, except a major problem, so the "official" version that you will find on the Mac App Store will be this one, The Golden Master.


To install OS X Mountain Lion, you need to buy the official version (19.99$) or open a developer account (99$/year) to obtain the Golden Master.


There is indeed another way to get the GM, but it's not allowed on the forum !

OK don't get me wrong. I'm not willing to share any illegal content here. Just trying to understand the concept of GM.
