Mac OS X "Has Mountain Lion been feeling faster for you compared to Lion on the same machine? It's probably not just you: Mountain Lion appears to include improved graphics drivers and low-level graphics subsystem improvements. According to our testing, these improvements result in an approximate performance increase of up to 10 percent. Those improvements can make your current hardware feel faster despite the fact that your CPU can't magically crunch numbers any faster. The changes also lay the foundation for Apple to update OS X's OpenGL support in a more timely manner, which could potentially lead to better graphics performance in the future."

Not trying to troll, but when macs really need these kinds of tweaks to be sensible it never harms their reputation as an easy to use computer that was designed to be intuitive.

But holy hell, suggest that as fix for KDE or Gnome 3 and you'll get slaughtered with people's comments on how it proves Linux isn't for normal people and only for geeks.
