It’s that time of the year again: Apple has just released the latest version of OS X, Mountain Lion, on the App Store for $21, which is quite cheap for what you get.
So far the reviews have been positive (you can find links below) and, as usual, the two definitive reviews so far is Nilay Patel from The Verge’s and the insane 26,000 word epic from John Siracusa over at Ars Technica.
Nilay Patel sums up the Mountain Lion, saying that it:
“isn’t perfect, but it’s a confident, thoughtful step towards the future of desktop computing”
And giving it an 8.7 out of 10.
I’m yet to read the 26,000 word Ars Technica review, and probably won’t (It’s $21), but it looks as if it’ll be a great upgrade at a great price.
But what are my thoughts on OS X 10.8? I don’t really have any at the moment, unfortunately. I’ve been running a developer preview, but I don’t think I’ll have a fair judgement, seeing as problems could’ve just been part of the preview. I have backed up my MacBook Pro and I’ll be clean installing Mountain Lion very, very soon. Hopefully I can write about it on TECHGEEK.com.au or here soon, if I can find some time.
