I'm looking forward to iMessage and AirPlay Mirroring. These features I could really use. Game Center will be a nice addition and only makes sense to add. Everything is getting much closer to bring completely integrated.

When do we get to mirror our iOS devices onto our Mac? My mini is already connected to my tv. I want to mirror my iPad to it so I can see it on my tv. Why can't my Mac do what an Apple TV can do?

What would you suggest?

No question they should do things specifically to help out people running high end apps, but what specifically is something that they would include in a day one announcement?

I literally just bought Lion... sigh... that's the way the cookie crumbles... Hopefully it will only be $30 again. I'm thankful Lion was only $30, don't get me wrong, but I would have waited for MT Lion if I knew it was coming not too far away.........

This and access to Photo Stream will make the upgrade worth the ?$29? price upgrade.

Can I skip Lion?

waiting for more info to come...

Why no ibooks?

The reason I avoid ibookstore and buy books from amazon is the lack of an ibooks app for desktop computers

What items have been removed?

I'm kind of surprised you can't run iOS apps on Mountain Lion.. and that Dashboard hasn't been improved / changed - its been forgotten since its release.

Looks great! I am really crossing my fingers for a HFS+ replacement, but I have a feeling it won't be this release.

I already own a Mac mini, 2 Macbook Pros, an iPad, and 2 iPhones, and numberous iPods. It's not like I don't give Apple lots of money every year.

Apple TV should be for people who only want to spend $99 to run their TV with a Mac. If I'm willing to spend $999 to run my TV with a Mac, I shouldn't get less features.

Hell, I'd even pay $99 for an OSX application that exactly replicated everything an Apple TV does (despite the fact that there's already a lot of overlap with OSX). What I do not want is yet another thing plugged into my TV.

AirPlay mirroring

So, since all Macs have a vertical resolution >720px, is this a hint that a new 1080-capable AppleTV is forthcoming? I can't imagine users on iMacs, MBPs, MacPros etc being satisfied with permanently down-scaled image!

..hope this isn't wishful thinking

What do we even need it for at all? It's just annoying.

The continuing slide into the iOSified muck. I hope to never leave Leopard/Snow Leopard.

Time sure does fly. I remember when Lion came out like it was just last summer.

iMessage, Notes, and Airplay Mirroring.

* Bout time. Been waiting for those features for some time. Notes and Mirroring long before there was Lion.

I'm also definitely thinking they should add iBooks. Or just some way to read them on the Mac. It's the only Apple platform (sans the TV) that can't read them even though I would mostly do that on the iPad.

Have to agree. Just one more step towards the ipadification of the Mac.

I didn't think they would fix any of the things that have kept me from Lion, but I still had hope. Today, hope died or at least got very sick! Right at the top of my list is that I still prefer the old approach to spaces. Maybe there will be more under the hood, but I'm not holding my breath.

I am with you on that. It just does not work really moving everything and it would be annoying if you are working on say a paper or email to have it moved on you when all you want to do is have a quick glance.

Apple gives you an option to do things more than one way? Come one we both know that is not really Apple's way. They tell you what is best.

Personally I do not like them putting iMessaging into the desktop. It is going to cause issues because how we write message from a computer is very different than from a phone and much faster. It makes communications between someone on a phone and a computer rather annoying. Anyone who has used one of the meany IM clients that bridges the gap between the 2 more than likely have noticed this frustrations in there are two different styles of writing and responding.
