Hue has nothing to do with your Mac. Is connects to your standard light bulb socet and to a bridge which you connect to your network. You can then control these lights via an iOS app or a web browser.
So. No, it does not run on 10.8, but it will work fine if you have a computer with 10.8 and use a browser like Safari.

Yes it does. There is an App on the Mac Appstore to control Hue. It is a third Party App, there is no App from Philips to switch an control your lights. Perhaps there are more Apps to come when the SDK from Philips is officially released.

Hue is OS agnostic!
It runs as a self-contained system and is controlled by its own wireless bridge and a smartphone app.
Your computer is irrelevant, except that you can control your lights via Philips website using any web browser if you've set up an account there.
