Windows "Though Windows 7 doesn't quite have the same experience when it comes to resolution and scaling control as OS X does - it can be a bit of a chore to get it just the way you like it - it's still quite useable on the Retina MacBook Pro's 15" 2880 x 1800 pixel screen. I recommend running Windows at full resolution with the 150 percent scaling setting - that seemed to give the best overall usability. 'Retina' class desktop displays are still a relative rarity today, so it will be some time before software developers adapt applications to best take advantage of such a resolution. In the meantime, you should have no trouble running Windows on the Retina MacBook Pro if the need arises." A look at how Windows 8 handles the display would've been nice, too.

For me I always got the feeling that Snow Leopard and Lion were kicking the can down the road to keep the legacy systems happy before they made a big change that would kill off support for older hardware. One of the biggest changes have been the move over to OpenGL 3.x as the basis of their graphics technologies rather than OpenGL 3.x merely being something 'tacked on' the side but with little integration. I'm on Mountain Lion right now and I haven't had any problems yet but compared to Lion t is far more stable than Lion and as for Snow Leopard - I love when I hear revisionist history when Snow Leopard was released and people on Macrumors to declaring that they'll stick with Leopard because Snow Leopard sucks, it's buggy and doesn't have enough features to justify an upgrade.
