Mountain Lion


[link to this post]
 
I am sure we all know by now that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion is available to buy in the App store now.

Are you going to be an early adopter or are you going to wait ?
I have bought it and am downloading it as I write this but have not decided when I will install it.

I'm going to download it as I get a free copy.
I'll probably install it straight away as I've got other laptops I can use if it blows up wink

Done and dusted, found no problems yet, feels a bit faster than Lion. It could be a new install thing though. Nothing much to report tbh a few changes but not a lot.

I have just updated my iMac to Mountain Lion and all seems to be ok so far. I have tried using Dictation but it is not quite there yet. Though it is supposed to learn your voice so it may improve. I am just about to upgrade my Macbook Pro.

Installed on my 2008 unibody Macbook. Seems to be stable thus far. Seems a bit nippier than its predecessor and anyone installing it might want to check software update immediately after (its now part of the App store application). It seems like a swathe of other stuff has been updated to be compatible. Also needed to update Air Display to keep using my iPad as a secondary screen and Trim Enabler to make Trim work on my SSD. I half expected it to baulk at the 8Gb of RAM I have iinstalled (the machine supposedly only supports 4GB), but it's perfectly happy. If anything untoward happens I'll let you all know.

I can't see anything on it that's going to be useful to me, and I am very cynical/bored of the term "faster and smarter"

found no problems yet
I think one of the chief drivers for the switch to usual smaller updates was to remove the scope for killer bugs and thus encourage take-up (taking a lesson from iOS).

MS is sticking with the "Big Bang" approach. Will be interesting to see how they compare.
