OS X Mountain Lion is the ninth major release of OS X, Apple Inc.’s desktop and server operating system for Macintosh computers. OS X Mountain Lion was released on July 25, 2012. It gains features from iOS, such as Notes and Reminders as applications separate from Mail and Calendar, in addition to those iOS features introduced to the Mac in OS X Lion. Check out these awesome reviews on the web about OS X Mountain Lion.
OS X Mountain Lion replaces iChat with Messages, which includes support for iMessage, allowing users to send unlimited messages to other Macs, iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches (running iOS 5 or later). It also includes the latest version of the Safari web browser, Safari 6.
It’s that time of year when a Mac owner’s fancy turns to thoughts of felines. Yes, those who lusted after Tiger, Leopard, Snow Leopard and Lion in summers past can finally get their paws on a brand new kitty: Mountain Lion.
Apple has issued a major update to its desktop operating system, OS X. This time last year, the company issued OS 10.7 Lion, a king-of-the-jungle moniker many thought would mark the end of Apple’s big cat naming scheme and, by extension, the OS X lineage. In February, however, the old operating system showed she still had some life left in her, when the next edition was revealed, arriving over the summer and called Mountain Lion.
Today, Apple has finally released their latest addition to the OS X family with version 10.8, also known as “Mountain Lion“. This new version brings with it a whole host of improvements, most of which focus on bringing features such as the Notification Center and iCloud from iOS to the Mac. In addition to those new features, 10.8 also includes systemwide refinements, which make the OS feel like what Lion should have been. And, at only $19.99, it’s the most affordable version of OS X yet.
From Leopard to Snow Leopard, Lion to the new Mountain Lion, Apple doesn’t change much when it comes to User Interface. Once you have purchased Apple’s latest Mac OS X operating system, the Mountain Lion, you would probably not notice any significant changes upon installation (some of you may say that it looks exactly like the Mac OS X Lion).
