Hey Guys,

Has anyone heard if 10.8 will be available in disc or thumb drive format?

Currently running SL with Lion upgrade on my MBP and was planning on doing a clean install with Lion, now i guess I'll wait for Mountain Lion.

Any thoughts?

Even if it isn't, you can still do a clean install regardless. More information here:

The same should apply to Mountain Lion.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Nope, App Store only. However, as mentioned by cwa, you should be able to create your own when the time comes (trust me, someone will create instructions if they're different from the Lion ones).
