Mac OS X Apple has just released Mountain Lion to the Mac App Store. For a measly $20, Lion users can move to the new release right now, and honestly, at that price, there's little reason not to for the Mac users among us. It's not a huge or massive release or anything, but if you're a fan of iOS, you're going to love all the OS bits and pieces that are being transferred to your desktop. Have fun installing, and, as always, be sure to read the only review that matters: John Siracusa's 25000 words long review (that's almost as long as the thesis I wrote to earn my master's degree, holy cripes!). I know what I'll be reading today on my brand new Nexus 7. If you can, please support Siracusa by buying the ebook version on Amazon (currently stuck in the review process, should show up any minute now). Why? Because Siracusa's kind of technology writing is something we need to cherish, because we have less and less of it.

A 250,000 word review of a point release of an OS? Seriously? Look, just how much of a geek do you have to be to read something that long about such a dry subject for enjoyment? rofl

(Mind you, I speak as a long time geek. Former network admin/engineer/architect, PC support, Novell Netware support, Unix/Linux/VMS/Windows server sysadmin, board level/component level electronic repair tech. I can't imagine wading through something that long for fun unless I was planning to use the material to build my own Hackintosh.)
