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 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

And more stable as well, which I'm sure is related to the memory management improvements among other things. I know everyone else seems to think sl is some sort of gold standard, but I had nothing but crashes and freezes with it that I never could diagnose. Lion and ml, on the other hand, have been rock solid for me as were Leopard and Tiger back in the day. I had enough stability problems with sl that it drove me to Windows for a while, that's how bad it was for me. I was glad to switch back when Lion came out and did away with those stability issues.
