The much awaited, latest and greatest version of Apple’s Operating System for the Mac is now available on the App Store. If you buy it using this link, I get a small kick out of it.
There are a lot of reviews out there, so I have picked out a few that I think you should definitely read.
- John Siracusa’s review for Ars Technica — John is back with his extensive and in-depth look at Mountain Lion.
- Jason Snell’s review for Macworld — I love reading Jason’s articles and his opinion is always very crisp and concise.
- Matthew Panzarino’s review for The Next Web — 17 pages of an extensive look at Mountain Lion, Matthew’s got it covered.
- The MacStories Review — Unlike the others, Viticci and his team decided to try something different this time. They have made available a DRM-free PDF book filled with their entire Mountain Lion coverage & exclusive Tips & Tricks for the OS. You can purchase it at just $6.99 and 30% of its proceeds going to the American Cancer Society.
I have been using it for the last 8 days, and I’ve been pretty happy with it. It feels like a solid release, what OS X Lion should’ve been in the first place. Unlike 10.7, Mountain Lion does not feel sluggish at all. The new additions like Dictation and Notification center are nice, but I’m yet to start using them extensively. Overall, OS X Mountain Lion is easily the best version of OS X so far, and is available at just $19.99 on the App Store.
