I thought it was confirmed to be July 25th?
Depends what you mean by made public. Apple will certainly update their homepage to have a slide for mountain lion right when you are welcomed to their site. Every mac blog in the world will have it advertised immediately on their front pages or main forums, and the apple store in general (online and brick and mortar) will certainly make it a selling point that new macs have mountain lion.
I wouldn't expect a personal email saying it's out, although I want to say that I did get one from the developer area saying Lion was out (free developer account that is), but I may very well be misremembering.
confirmed by who?
Nothing is confirmed until Apple says so.
Last year, Apple waited until their quarterly earnings report to announce the release date for Lion (which was the next day). Apple is holding their earnings call this afternoon after the markets close, so there is a strong possibility they will announce today that it will be released tomorrow. The GM build (which is the version that will be posted in the App Store) has been available for developers for the last week or so, so we're definitely close to the release date.
Yes, sounds like tomorrow based on last year's Lion release....
I'm thinking about buying my first Mac ever in about two weeks, do you think that if Mountain Lion was released this week it will then be already pre-installed in my machine? From past experience, how many time does it take to Apple to ship its machines with a new OS release?
Nothing is announced yet but it's most likely to be announced at today's quarterly earnings call (as was Lion last year).
It should hit the App Store tomorrow.
Official. Conference call just announced ML release tomorrow.
