since older macs won't be supported by mountain lion, does anyone know if Lion will still be available in the app store after the mountain lion release?

I would imagine that it will be available at the least because some people may still want to buy it for older Macs, as you suggest.

It also seems like if you're running Snow Leopard then you'd be expected to upgrade to Lion and then Mountain Lion...it's my impression that the Mountain Lion pricing and installation is based on the assumption you're running Lion already. So it would need to be available for anyone who's upgrading from Snow Leopard too, if that's the case.

since you can sill purchase Snow Leopard it would make sense you could still buy Lion when Moutain Lion is released
