Apple's newest desktop/laptop operating system, Mac OS X 10.8 (otherwise known as Mountain Lion) was released this morning. You can only get it via download in the Mac App Store, for an impulse-worthy $20. We're still playing with ours; it's a minor update, especially compared to the complete overhaul that is the next version of Windows, though there are some new features here we're excited about, like AirPlay mirroring, a great new version of Safari, and a notifications bar. If you've got, like, a full day, check out Ars Technica's review--it's a 26,000-word, 24-page behemoth of a piece that covers all the ins, outs, and other prepositions related to the new update.
Soooo, a cheaply offered operating system from the folks of Apple. Hmm, this should be exciting, let me read the comments from all those who are excited. Nope, nothing said so far.
Well the article does say Ars Technica's review offers a 26,0000 word review about the new software. I wonder how much that 'paid' review cost to promote sleepy (Mountain Lion) operating system.
This is the best operating system I have used. Two words: Airplay Mirroring! Plus a bunch of iOS integration that makes working on the go a lot easier.
And you can't beat the price.
You're the very reason I hadn't commented. Mr. drawing conclusions having never used the operating system. Also, I doubt that the review was paid. Some people are very excited about mountain lion ( and rightly so) they just steer away from the retards who comment on every single apple product that is posted. Pray tell, what is the basis for your claim that mountain lion is 'sleepy?' I would pay windows price for a new OS that lets me mirror my system without 'home sharing' and password protecting everything!
He he the Mormon churches university has a mountain lion for a mascot. This must be another subliminal pro Romney thing like batman. (^_^)
This softwear really shows up Windows. Not only does it improve on the best OS for consumers ever, Mac Lion OS, it does so at a price MicroShaft charges for about a minute of phone-tech! LOL! Windows 8, which I've not previewed, already seems overpriced and over-complicated with two separately operating systems/GUI's. This begs the question, why water down a operating system to be usable in both lower powered mobile devices and high-powered cutting edge performance PC's. Is Redmond in a haze of reality that makes Job's "distortion reality field" seem totaly lucid and visionary?
This software is great. I love the sleek design in it. Though for the technical guy it isn't that great. It seems to be leaning towards the average family that doesn't want a complicated OS.
