Also on Monday, Apple confirmed that it will again provide free upgrades to Mountain Lion to customers who buy a new Mac with Lion pre-installed. That program, called "Up-To-Date" by Apple, goes into effect today and continues as long as either Apple or its authorized resellers sell Lion-powered machines.

The free upgrades will be available when Mountain Lion reaches the Mac App Store next month. More information about the program, and an online submission form for a free copy of Mountain Lion, will be posted on this Apple page at that time.
