A Mountain Lion Did Roar

Mountain Lion comes out on Wednesday, July 25th. Many a Mac user will be installing it on that day. I’ll be at work in the morning which will give me time to read reports of any potential issues that might surface.

So, are you installing Mountain Lion on launch day? Yes, no, maybe? Do you already have Moutain Lion? How stable / fast does it run on your Mac? Sound off in the comments below!

Don’t forget, I’m still taking pre-orders for new PC Weenies books and stickers. Your orders are a vote of encouragement to me, as a lone cartoonist, and is, as always, greatly appreciated!

    I’ve had Mountail Lion GM installed for about a week. I like the unified notifications (like a growl refinement), but the OS feels slower than 10.7. I’ll install retail once its out, if it isn’t speedier ill go back to 10.7. All my apps and hardware works perfectly.

      Did you perform a clean install, Giridhar? Or did you install over top? My main curiosity is whether or not there will be a noticeable speed improvement on my hardware (both are currently supported by Mountain Lion, but barely.) ;)

    No. I’m sticking with Snow Leopard. Too much PowerPC software that requires Rosetta. Plus all the issues with Lion made it seem like an upgrade to skip, so I’ll be interested to see how ML addresses those issues.

    My ancient (in computer terms) MacBook Pro won’t run Lion or Mountain Lion due to its 32-bit processor. I’ll see if my wife’s iMac and MacBook will upgrade though. They’re both running Lion. I’ve been waiting for the new Mac Mini for quite some time. I was hoping it would be here by now so I could run Mountain Lion on one of my computers too!

    Mountain Lion… You are making my system look like an old, dying Tiger.

    Mac OS X 10.4.11 Server, on a dual processor Xserve G4.

Tell me what you think!
