I have done all of the prep for my install of Mountain Lion, and all that is left is for that little link to pop up on the apple website. So who else is with me in pulling an all nighter in anticipation of this **** dropping? In the words of Tom Petty: the wait is the hardest part.

There is absolutely no reason to pull an all-nighter. It wonít be available until start of business Cupertino time. Most of us will be well in our day when ML is actually available to download. Apple doesnít do midnight releases.

Agreed , It will not be released until sometime tomorrow not tonight or even early morning so there is no reason to stay up . Also you might be waiting a while to download it too because it will be in high demand the first couple days and the whole week .

In all fairness though there really is not much to be excited about in my opinion it is really not changing that much from lion .

This will probably be apple's last real os so enjoy it , we will probably be forced into a IOS style os next year or so .

I'm not. I keep current Time Machine backups so if something goes wrong, I can restore to Lion easily. I'll be upgrading overtop of Lion just as I have done with every OS since Tiger.

Being that most of use here have jobs to go to in the morning, no thanks.;) Besides it will not be released until the next morning anyway. Get some sleep and download it in the morning.

I don't know how you guys can even think about sleeping knowing that this thing can drop any minute. Hell, I've been hitting the refresh button on the apple site like a madman in the hopes that they will release it in the UK time zone. At this point I'm embracing the fact that I am going to be up all night, I've already pounded 2 5 hour energies.

Have it your way folks, but remember, I will be one of the first ones banging that download link, and I'm going to hit it before the big rush comes about an hour later. I will have this thing, and be learning all of the little nuances of it while everyone who waited will be sitting there watching their download move at 1kb/s with their thumbs up their arses.

Yes. Last year, when Lion was released, I checked the MAS around 5:45 AM EST, and no release. I don't expect this year to be any different.

However, I still downloaded at about my maximum possible speed on the day of release last year, which was around 2-3 MB/s. Apple did a phenomenal job keeping the servers going, I must say.

Hey, two weeks later I'll have 5MB/s download. While you'll have to pray not many are online at that time and watch your download go from 1MB/s to 1KB/s

Who cares , there is no rush for me and nothing is going to be that different from lion to be honest you get very little but the price is good and worth it . But it is not something I got to have today or tomorrow or next week .

Do you really get this hyped over a simple OS revision? How can this possibly create that kind of fixation? I'd rather grab it 2 months later when everything actually runs as intended.

Big deal. Last year I bought Lion on my old Macbook in about an hour at about 6:00 pm. Took about an hour and 15 minutes to download which isnít too bad given the size.

I'll remember that after I download/install it and play with it for a day or so that life will be exactly as it was yesterday and today, just with a 10.8 showing up in About This Mac as opposed to 10.7.4.

I don't think Lion was available for download until mid-day here in the central time zone (US). I would imagine Mountain Lion will be the same way.

I'll stay up with you buddy (you can just ignore the fact that I work at night and need to be awake in any case).

I waited in line all night for the Xbox 360 launch in the cold - so staying up all night, at home, watching tv, and surfing the internet seems rather reasonable in that regard.

I hear you. If it's like lion was it won't be out until late morning in the eastern US, maybe 8 or 9 pacific time. Don't kill yourself waiting till the wee hours.

I doubt they will get hit significantly on the server loads. This is not as big as an iOS launch.

I have a Comcast business account at home and I work at a datacenter. I'm going to set my clock for 1/2AM tomorrow morning and if it's not released yet, I'll wait until I get to work. I'll screen share (via VPN) to my MacMini at home and start the download once it's announced.

do two 5 hour energies provide energy for 10 hours, or does it give you double the energy for those five hours?

I hope for a midnight release. I want something new from Apple. It's taking way too long to get something new. I don't like to wait.

Lion was released early in the morning, and ML will also probably be released in the morning, so staying up all night won't do you much good. Better to just get some sleep and wake up early.

I am not saying it will be completely like IOS but it will be very similar though and you can allready see it happening with the mac app store and the ios apps moving to the mac , probably not in a year though . But by 2015 I am pretty sure apple will be out of the traditional computer business , but it is just the way the world is moving now but I need a desktop not a tablet interface that's just my opinion I could be wrong though it is only my opinion remember that . I am a big apple and Mac fan but I can not stand using IOS devices or tablets . I am not the only person that beleives this either just listen to macbreak weekly or many other podcasts or professionals in the mac community .

They have not even updated the Mac Pro since like 2010 so obviously apple does not really care for professionals as much as they used too . They are focused on IOS but even IOS is falling behind of android right now and IOS 6 still looks like it is behind android . I am a apple fan as much as anybody on here but not so much a IOS fan but I do like ipods . Still Mountain Lion looks cool for what it is a couple of new things but not really a big upgrade in my opinion .

This is just a ridiculous statement. Ever since Lion released you guys went into Doomsday mode about Macintosh Computers. Chill the **** out people. Both iOS and OS X are great Operating Systems but they are both for their respective devices. iOS runs on an iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or AppleTV. Mac OS X, and future releases will run on Macintoshes.

There is no merger between the two in the foreseeable future. There is no reason for Apple to 'get out of the computer business' either. That's pure ****. Macs are booming right now, one half of Mac purchases are new customers according to the Q3 call.

Macs aren't going anywhere. Chill out.

Also, the Mac Pros were actually revised this year. Though it was a minor revision, it was a CPU change because Intel is no longer producing CPUs that were previously used. And why would Apple revise the Mac Pro line if there is still no 'Hackintosh' or PC that can beat it for the price? The 12-core Mac Pro isn't even in a danger zone for competition. Plenty of power. When others start catching up to the 6-core, 8-core, 12-core, whatever-you-want-core, then Apple should revise the Mac Pro.

For the (I lost count on the number of times) - Apple does not distribute the OS themselves. They utilize a CDN named Akaimi to distribute the load throughout the world. They do not run out of bandwidth. They pay based on how much gets used.

But dude, it's released today, that comment is worthless now.

There are a lot more changes between Lion to ML than there were SL to Lion, yet I'm guessing you still got Lion.

Sure, all those people who say the changes between Mac OS X's are no where near as significant as the changes between the Windows OS's, compare the price difference-
Windows 7- $100
Mountain Lion- $20

The price fully justifies the changes, in my opinion.

So from now on Windows is actually cheaper. Only 13$ per year! Eat it fanboys!

I don't feel superior. Like everyone else who posted in this thread, I stated my opinion, which is just as valid as anyone else's. I don't have to refrain from posting just because I may have a different point of view than some others in the thread. You didn't see me telling anyone else not to post or telling them to "let them be".

:) Dragged kicking and screaming to the future...:D I actually prefer SL to Lion, but with 2 i-devces I'm curious to see how far down the integration path they've gone this time. My revised plan is to upgrade one Mac....Probably my MBA, and leave it a couple of days to see how things are. I have no plans, however to go all retro and re-install SL...Like you say, eventually you are going to have to do it. Maybe it's time for a nice shiny new Mac too?:D

"Leading edge" is fine. "Bleeding edge"... I'll pass! I prefer to sit back and let early adopters be the guinea pigs, discovering any bugs, incompatibilities, etc. By the time I upgrade, hopefully several updates will have been released and 3rd party apps will have caught up.
I actually prefer SL to Lion, but with 2 i-devces I'm curious to see how far down the integration path they've gone this time.
I can't think of any iDevice integration I need beyond what's already available in SL.
Maybe it's time for a nice shiny new Mac too?:D
Not for me, just yet. If I were forced to buy a new one, it would be a 15" hi-res anti-glare, but I'm in no hurry. Mine still does all I need it to do.

pretty much this. I highly doubt any of us have stayed up just refreshing the update page. so again, no need for some people to make it seem so ridiculous to still be up for this as it is just an added bonus to doing some of this other stuff.

The user states they use Snow Leopard. The Mac App store would be available in Snow Leopard if they want to use it.

I also use Snow Leopard at work - but it's not really an option to upgrade as we use apps that don't work with Lion on occasion.

That's another example of "bleeding edge" I've avoided: the whole Thunderbolt issue. While others are waiting on the Tb to Firewire adapter, I'm still using FW 800 for my external drives, without a hitch. By the time I decide to get a new MBP, the adapters will be out, and hopefully, more Tb devices will be available.

But dude, it's released today, that comment is worthless now.

There are a lot more changes between Lion to ML than there were SL to Lion, yet I'm guessing you still got Lion.

Sure, all those people who say the changes between Mac OS X's are no where near as significant as the changes between the Windows OS's, compare the price difference-
Windows 7- $100
Mountain Lion- $20

The price fully justifies the changes, in my opinion.
Well if, hypothetically speaking, Mountain Lion were being released tomorrow, I still would not pull an all-nighter in order to download it. The reason? IT IS AN UPDATE FOR A COMPUTER OPERATING SYSTEM!

If you have nothing better to do than sit up all night waiting to download AN UPDATE FOR A COMPUTER OPERATING SYSTEM(!), I would seriously suggest that you undertake a thorough assessment of yourself and the life you are leading before you go around decreeing what other things are 'worthless'.

It will still be there tomorrow ;)

If you're talking about people pulling all nighters - no. What's it matter anyways? Everyone has something they dedicate time and money into. For some it is cars, others music, some people clothing. A friend of mine spends a ton of time
and money on furniture (that she truly doesn't need). Myself and many on this forum spend our time and money on electronics.

If I want to buy a $1500 TV, I remember that my brother spent $5000 on a turbo for his car - and then I buy my TV with a smile. When I wanted to buy a new iMac, I opted for the souped-up 27" model because I enjoy spending my money there. When I was thinking about buying a media extender for my TV, I stayed up for hours and hours researching the differences between appletv, roku, and the others.

I'm sure there is something stupid you stay up all night doing, other than masterb*ting. Lol

Until a few months ago, I was running Leopard on my MBP. Now I'm on SL.

Never.

iPhone 4 on IOS 5.1.1, non-jailbroken.

What rev of SL 10.6. ?

The reason I ask is I have one of my MBP's (mid 2010 15" MBP) on 10.6.4 and wonder if I should bump it to 10.6.5. I hesitate to go higher since at 10.6.6 it includes the Mac App store which I don't want.

I could go higher & just let the Mac App Store app sit there unused. Perhaps I'm too concerned, but I'd rather be precise & not overlook something important.

The main reason I'm being so specific is the security / malware issue. Largely a non-issue as I practice safe computing. I just want to be sure I keep it that way.

Therefore any tips or suggestions are appreciated.

Thanks!
