Can i update 10.8 through the built- in software

While sailing over the seven seas i suddenly came across the .iso of the OS X 10.8 software. (lets see how many of you that got that
So before installing it, i must have one question answers first:
Can i update 10.8 through the built- in Software Update (found under the  in the top left corner), or must i go to the Developer Central ( like for example on Apples web site) and from there manually download the updates?

Have a good one!/

The latter will apply.

In OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) that software centre will be a thing of the past. Apple are moving to a single point of software updates for apps and system updates through the Mac App store.

You will need to go to the developer centre and manually download OS X 10.8 and install it.

Remember to make a backup of your current system incase something goes wrong!
