OS X Mountain Lion Will Be A Mac App Store Exclusive, Won’t Ship On USB Keys

Say goodbye to this.
Say goodbye to your little friend.

Were you one of the people who freaked out about OS X Lion not shipping on DVD? Did you get outraged that the cost of a OS X Lion USB thumb drive cost $69.00, more than double the price of Lion through the App Store? Well, prepare to be incensed, because when OS X Mountain Lion ships, it’ll be a Mac App Store exclusive. That means it won’t even ship on a thumb drive anymore.
