IT Infrastructure: Mac OS X Mountain Lion: 10 Things to Love or Hate About Apple's New OS
After Apple announced OS X Mountain Lion, it didn't take me long to download the software. As a longtime Mac user, I had every intention of getting in on the Mountain Lion fun and finding out once and for all if the software was right for what I look for in an operating system. After just 24 hours with the software, it's hard to say right now if Mountain Lion is a major step up over Lion. The operating system works in much the same way, but adds a couple of applications that seem to be useful. And with Notification Center kept handy at the side of the screen, OS X Mountain Lion delivers several notable differences compared with its predecessor. Still, it's not all pretty. Some third-party applications aren't working so well with the software. OS X Mountain Lion looks like a bit of a mixed bag. It doesn't look like a major upgrade, and at $19.99, it's hard to determine if the price matches the overall value that it delivers. Take a look at this slide show to learn more about the good, the bad and the surprising features about OS X Mountain Lion.
Notification Center Is Great
Although I've only been using Mountain Lion for 24 hours, I can already tell that Notification Center will be a welcome companion. The center alerts me to emails, messages and other important updates, and sits conveniently to the side of my screen when I call on it. Notification Center is a great addition.
