Mac OS X Apple has released OS X 10.8.3. The biggest improvement is Windows 8 support in Boot Camp - although Windows 7 drivers seemed to work fine as well for running Windows 8 on Macs (or so I've read). You know how to get it.

i must admit since the lion/mountain lion era the update notification has been a little sporadic. Ive been using Mac OSX since tiger and the update notification has always been pretty much on the ball and pretty much instantaneous for me.

Since lion and mountain lion sometimes they come up right away sometimes a week or two can pass before it pops up.

Same for application updates, i thought that having them go through the apple store was meant to bring about better notifications, however it seems that only when i remember and open the app store application that i get presented with a list of apps that need updating.

From snow leopard, OSX sucks a lot.

I don't know so much ;) I agree about the updates - I have suffered the same lag with this latest one for ML but having gone from SL to ML recently, I can't honestly say I am pining for SL. My machine feels sleeker, permissions seems to be behaving themselves more, programmes are loading faster, and the OS seems more out of my way than ever before. I carefully avoided Lion but am enjoying ML a lot. I didn't expect to (I simply upgraded since some programmes I was wanting to use were becoming increasingly unavailable-but that's a different story) but there it is. I have been critical of Apple and OS X in the past: I just speak as I find.

May I ask why?

I think Mountain Lion is better than Snow Leopard in almost every way. I actually spent quite some time with Snow Leopard recently, testing out some applications and it struck me how old it felt and how much nicer Mountain Lion is to use. Especially all the trackpad stuff.

I agree that the notifications are a little slow to show up though, I think it's the same with system updates on iOS, perhaps it is too offload the servers.

Although the notifications are a little effy i do prefer mountain lion to snow leopard, im just glad they brought expose back for mountain lion as i would have agreed.

I found ML faster and more responsive and better with memory than SL
