will Mountain Lion be a standalone .dmg with a package inside?

or do i have to re-learn the whole 'InstallESD' extraction process?

cheers

It will be distributed exclusively via the App Store.

It would make sense to maintain the App Store installation process.

Context-click on the downloaded installer, go to SharedSupport, and copy the InstallESD.dmg in there.

Sorry: Context menu.

Secondary click, right-click, or control-click.

I prefer to wait about 4-12 hours after the OSX release for the Mac experts online to write an article about how to extract the DMG form the downloaded file and burn a DVD or USB.
