There's already been plenty written about Mountain Lion, Apple's latest version of its Mac OS X operating system, which became available to users on Wednesday, but scanning the Twitterverse can provide a different view - that from every day users, who don't necessarily write about technology for a living.
So far, the buzz around Mountain Lion seems generally positive, but there are some who seem to view it only as a moderate improvement from the previous version, and others are complaining about various issues they've run into (including compatibility issues with third-party software).
While many are still only getting their feet wet with Mountain Lion, and surely many more haven't had a chance to install it and use it yet, following is an early round-up of what people are saying on Twitter, a day after the operating system's initial availability.
I've got OS X Mountain Lion for my MacBook! It's pretty awesome!
Loving the new @apple mountain lion, now I can tweet from my computer without opening Twitter!!
A Mountain Lion is also known as a puma and with that, Apple has lazily reused a cat name. » http://t.co/NZMakKms
That Photoshop bug where you have to CMD-Tab to the app to use menus & tools? Still happens in Mountain Lion.
Upgrade to Mountain Lion worked so well I need to rethink my plans for a complete reinstall…
So far Mountain Lion is a Winner, The speech to Txt is incredibly accurate and the notifications is great addition
@samdixon23 Mountain Lion is crazy! not much of a difference, but Notifications Centre and Twitter Intergration is perfect!
stuff that's fully compatible with mountain lion: mountain lion. stuff that's not fully compatible with mountain lion: everything else
Turned out none of my Macs are supported by Mountain Lion’s AirPlay mirroring. That’s ok because @AirParrot works just as good. 😉
well parallels wants me to pay to upgrade to run on mountain lion, but not used it for over a year so freeing up 9 gb of windows image
liking Mountain Lion. Very Nice! Get your iMessages straight to your desktop.
Big fan of Mountain Lion, especially the notification centre! #OSX
They should rename Mountain Lion to "Corrupt all your files and ruin your life"
As an interesting side-note, if you choose to upgrade to OSX Mountain Lion today, be prepared for a two-hour adventure...
Thus far, Mountain Lion is just a faster, more stable Lion, with a few cool new bells and whistles thrown in. I feel bad for Windows users.
just upgraded to Mountain Lion and my VMWare is incompatible! arrgh!
Here's our initial piece on what to expect from Mountain Lion, and here's a five-minute rundown from Apple:
