I have been enjoying it so far. What are you favorite features so far?
Sometimes, I have to ask myself why I bought Mountain Lion. It has very few visible upgrades to me and I still have all the OS X bugs that Lion introduced.
However! I do like that the dictation feature I've used a bit on my iPad is now on OS X. Notification center, reminders, and iCould stuff is all interesting, but almost useless since I don't use an iPhone or stock apps.
Safari is not a OS X upgrade. That's just stupid to lump it with Mountain Lion features.
Once I get an iPhone, I'll probably benefit more from Notifications and Reminders.
I guess the Notification Center and dictation really are my only favorite features for now.
BTW, I noticed that the Twitter notifications aren't push, because even my Old Yeller TweetDeck will receive a reply notification before OS X does.
I haven't upgraded yet, waiting to hear a little more about what is new and if it's worth it to jump on it.
i really like Dictation and Air Play in Mountain Lion.
Kim, I have tried out dictation a bit and like it so far. I LOVE airplay. Being able to send audio to my TV (via Apple TV) and using my TV as a second monitor rocks. Like the built in Flickr & Twitter support too.
I haven't upgraded any of the six Macs in our home yet. Maybe this coming weekend? We'll see.
I'm most looking forward to AirPlay.
There isn't much visibly different. Honestly, it's a lot of small stuff under the hood, and none of it really blows me away. That said, yes, dictation is cool and I will be using it a lot. Airplay would be nice, but my home macbook is apparently too old to run it. Notifications are nice, but I don't want tons of notifications trying to steal my attention when I am working. Messages is probably the best thing about it, being able to shoot a "text" to my wife's phone from my work macbook without pulling the phone out.
I can already text anyone with a phone through my PC with Android. But this is one of my important features I need before switching to iPhone.
I've heard reports that the Messages app emails an SMS number from your Apple ID if you don't have iOS 6.
I just realize that i have been using Notes a lot to remember those little things i tend to forget. I especially like the fact that if you double click on a note it will separate from the pad and become like a sticky of old.
Notes are now 10 times more useful because of the OS X app and syncing via iCloud. Although, that still does not get you cross platform compatibility. I have been using Evernote for that. It's the ultimate note tool.
I've actually been using Mountain lion for a few weeks, since the Gold Master came out for developers. iCloud tabs are my favorite thing. I also love having the notes and reminders apps on my desktop and syncing up with my mobile devices.
You guys will really love ML more when iOS 6 is out.
