I really hope they start offering major OSX updates for free like they do with major iOS updates... like how we didn't have to pay for iOS 4 or iOS 5, etc.

If they're bent on creating a similar platform between iOS and OSX, and also on releasing a new major OSX every year, then I think this would be the fairest and most logical thing to do: to offer Mountain Lion as a free update to those who have Lion.

Or perhaps they just disagree with you. After all, this is an Apple-oriented forum, so one could safely assume that most users on here enjoy the look and feel of Apple products.

Looks like Apple is finally doing something with Mission Control, but the good old expose will be gone forever :|

EDIT: Apple needs to fix the font in the notification centre on OS X- Helvetica is not suitable for low PPI displays running OS X and it looks crippled.
Yup I agree some of the UI choices in Mountain Lion I'm not loving, but it's still developer preview I'm sure Apple will make more refinements..

Awesome!

EDIT: Although I would have kind of liked it if they had implemented what I suggested here. I enjoy the fact that you can send entire applications to another space with the current Mission Control by grabbing the app's icon. It seems that that wouldn't be possible anymore once you disable grouping windows by application?!

I completely agree here with the lack of color. I really am disappointed in the lack of color in the finder window sidebar and other sidebars (such as in iTunes). Different colors and custom folder icons made it easy to navigate and find what I was looking for. Moreover, all that grey looks dull! I miss the colorful OS!

As for the giant toggle, well I kinda agree that it's not quite at its place in this "mouse pointer world". It should be "off" and "on" radio buttons really.
The only other place I remember seeing a toggle that also felt out of place, was in the Time Machine Preference Pane.

I'm going to echo the greyscale complaints. The OS feels much less "friendly" with everything so grey. It looks more Adams Family than Apple.

I am going to file a bug report with Apple and ask them to add the Cmd modifier to send all the application windows to another space, much like how Spaces in 10.5 and 10.6 worked.

That's what I was waiting for since 10.6...!
I'm buying ML as soon as it is available just for that one function.

That would be great! I didn't even know about (or don't remember) that functionality in 10.5/6.

Yea, Im still on 10.6, too and my only hope since dev version of Lion was to get back Expose.

Cough Windows 8 Cough.

Thats absolutely fine. I loved Snow Leopard and I love Lion. I'm liking Mountain Lion day by day. But that doesn't stop me hating some of the UI choices Apple has held on in iOS and OS X.

For some of the things, hey can disagree. But some of the UI is so hideous, that disagreeing without reasoning is just stupid.

Where do you want me to go and bitch about Apple UI design choices? Obviously on Apple forums right?

So happy to hear a more traditional Exposť is making a comeback.

Now reinstate 'Save As' and do away with this stupid 'Save a Version/Duplicate' crap and I'd upgrade from 10.6.8 in a heartbeat.

I've been using iWork for years and I see Auto Save and Versions as a very compelling reason to use Microsoft Office.

Expose in 10.6 is already wrong. Last really useful Expose was in 10.5. In 10.6 they added windows scaling, which is disorienting (big Safari window is displayed in the same size as little download window, making it hard to quickly find the one I'm looking for). Mission Control in Lion was in fact a step in right direction: windows aren't scaled any more. And now in ML it's back to the old, real Expose: not scaled windows, all visible at the same time.

Can't wait for the release!

Oh good, someone who has never used a feature commenting on how said feature should go away.

iWork's Auto Save is a compelling reason to use Office? Really?

You do realize how auto save works don't you? Oh right, you're still on 10.6.8.
