    Dowloaded some apps from torrens and I want to use them but I get this when I try to install.

    Your security preferences allow only installation of only apps from the MAC APP STORE and identified developers

    How do I get around this? I couldn't find the exact spot to do this in sys preferneces

    Thanks.

    Is this common for people who DL from torrents, to do this option to "install from anywhere?"

    I guess so, since it is probably software you haven't paid for. I also don't use OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

    It does not have anything I need and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion only have Mission Control, which is an abomination of Spaces.

    Imagine going from Spaces in Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, looking like this

    to Mission Control in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, looking like this

    Of course, not everyone uses that many Spaces, but Mission Control seriously hampers the usefulness of more than four virtual desktops.
