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.

Would you care to elaborate on what's been dumbed down in OS X?
I've been using OS X for five years and can't think of a single feature lost over the four OS updates in that time. Instead, I've found OS X becoming more flexible and intuitive. In my opinion, you just can't beat an OS that provides the likes of quick look alongside a full unix command line.

While I agree that the updates have been mostly for good, I have to complain that Apple removing Rosetta hurt me quite a bit when I got Lion over Snow Leopard.

Luckily, the software in question was also available in Windows so running it in Virtualbox was a workaround for me.
