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.

Apart of exposing your curriculum vitae, you should take a look to John Siracusa's reviews of all OS X versions, starting from 10.0. His reviews are amongst the best tech reviews over there and therefore his work is truly respectful.

His review are very detailed, so they are very "high quality" for those who want to know every detail of Mac OS X.

For the other who want to know what are the interesting points (and not the pointless details), they are not very good because they dilute the interesting points among a lot of unininteresting details.
