Good: Social Networking Integration, Notification Centre, Standalone Notes & Reminders
Bad: Battery life extremely short on Mac Book Pro 13"
Comment: This would be a great upgrade if it wasn't for the extreme short battery life after the upgrade. Normally on my MacBook Pro with Lion I get 5 hours of usage, after the upgrade max 1 hour with same type of usage. I tried installing it twice with same result, so I would definitely not recommend upgrading if you rely on mobility until that has been fixed.
Good: built in social networking
Comment: love using this os very simple and smooth
Good: Great for MacAir!
Comment: One of the moans about Lion on the MacAir was the delay in trackpad wake-up. Gone! And generally the track-pad is all-round smoother and faster. Huge improvement.
Comment: Its wonderful, super responsive and gives windows a run for its money. Been using Mountain Lion for like a month now, I'm very happy with its performance. Its graphic adaption is very quick and notification centre is very handy, hopefully skype comes up with notification centre support. iCloud is amazing and very smartly syncs all your devices, and the fact that it has PC support makes it even more amazing. 'All in all its a amazing piece of software' and rightfully "The most Advance OS ever"
Good: Nothing has far has i am concerned
Bad: It`s just come out, on top of Lion?
Comment: It wasn`t very long ago get Snow Leopard it`s great,after we were settling down out comes Lion,and if that wasn`t enough Mountain Lion jumps out. Apple will be running out cat`s at this rate?
Comment: Looks plenty sleek, and not too expensive. Definitely will this out.
Comment: Just downloaded Mountain Lion on the iMac . Adobe Flash does not work, not sure whether it is not supported by Mountain Lion or not as I have been unable to download Flash from Adobe website. So if watching video on the internet is important, do not upgrade to Mountain Lion.
Any help/suggestion appreciated.
Good: voice dictation notifications iCloud
Bad: voice dictation does not understand an irish accent well
Comment: mountain lion is a great upgrade for 15 Euro voice dictation is handy for students who have a rushed deadline i've found it needs work understanding an irish accent siri works fine with my accent but this does not and icloud is faster and has more to offer with my iOS devices
