I'm still on Snow Leopard. I haven't really seen the need to upgrade yet.

Ditto.

Technically, I don't think I can upgrade to Lion, even if I wanted to. I have a 2007 iMac... and I read somewhere something about Lion doesn't support the older Core 2 Duos. I'm pretty sure Mountain Lion will definitely out of reach. (Not that I care)

Well according to the article the officially supported Macs are:

iMac (mid 2007 or later)
MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later), (15-inch, 2.4/2.2 GHz), (17-inch, Late 2007 or later)
MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
Mac Mini (Early 2009 or later)
Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
Xserve (Early 2009)

So I guess it depends when your Mac was made as to will it work. I'm guessing it will be available through the OSX app store (possibly only there) and will be able to tell you if you can use it (or not show up if you can't use it).

I also think it will only be available through the OSX app store because it will help prevent people from needing to ask "Will my mac run this?"
