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

The review is 25,000 words, not 250,000. Do you suffer from dyslexia?

Former network admin/engineer/architect, PC support, Novell Netware support, Unix/Linux/VMS/Windows server sysadmin, board level/component level electronic repair tech.

Is this a list of the jobs your dyslexia got you fired from?

IIRC, the news above originally said 250000 (I remember I had an impression that the quoted number is insanely high; 25k wouldn't cause that impression) - so at best, your cheap diatribe has wrong recipient.
