That's pretty simple and a very understandable statement.
It's simple alright.

I'm so tired of waiting for this...
I can't fully migrate to my new Mac without proper Windows 8 support, and looks like by the time 10.8.3 will be released I will be on my next Mac already

Does the graphic enhancements of 10.8.3 improve chrome experience?

Maybe its just me but scrolling in chrome is much slower than safari on RMBP..

I hope RBMP becomes snappier in terms of graphics, thats my only compliant with my 13 RMBP

I can't wait to see the stories about how many security and bugs there are in 10.8.3 after the stable version goes live.

Isn't this the responsibility of Google to take care of? Last I checked, Apple doesn't optimize Chrome's code for Retina performance. Now, if Apple doesn't fix the CSS rendering hell on Safari for Retina after over a half a year since release, I'll be one grumpy customer.

Yes, there is a huge benefit to it actually. You should know that for some people this is a key selling point for Apple computers.

Imagine people who are not computer enthusiasts, and are very busy with their work. They don't care about the latest rumors and whatever. They just want a computer that works and *DOES NOT* bug them every day about some new updates.

If you really want faster updates, you can switch to Windows or Linux, or pay the developer fee and get early access to OS X betas. Majority of people don't want faster updates, which is why Apple doesn't do it faster for general public.

Why are people complaining about the number of betas, Do you actually want them to release half-baked software?!

No. A logic board in a MBP with a defective NVIDIA GPU is a bricked motherboard. NVRAM is just a software problem. Or do you mean a defective NVRAM chip!?

I hope to see that my screen sharing, file sharing, wifi sync will work when the computer is asleep. I have had this issue for a long time. I have my time capsule set up in bridge mode because of Verizon Fios limitations and have not been able to have wake on LAN. I saw somewhere that it is fixed in 10.8.3 Would live to see some thumbs up from people that are beta testing.

I hope there won't be a 12th beta. I hope the update is released to the public by next Thursday. But, then again, one great thing about releasing more builds is that it means more testing, which most likely means that more bugs are fixed and the OS is more stable! Of course, Mountain Lion has not been a big problem for me, since my Mac is still fast enough and completely usable. But, it is buggy, so I would like the OS to be a lot more stable and, of course, I would like the "file" bug to be fixed. I have never needed to type that, however.

There is also one other bug that I discovered. When I changed my username, OS X did not register it when resuming from sleep mode. It would not allow me to log back into my desktop even though I entered the correct password. I had to restart my Mac in order to log back in. I reported that bug to Apple and I would like to see if it is among the bugs that are fixed in 10.8.3.

I am currently using 10.8.2, the latest update that's currently available to consumers.

So what if the customer received a product that *DOES NOT* work correctly? Are you saying that Apple is so concerned with being unobtrusive that it withholds crucial updates for several months on end as a "convenience" to their customers? That makes perfect sense.

FWIW, updates on Linux and Windows are very easily configured. If you are the type of person that simply cannot bring yourself to do 2-3 mouse clicks to modify the automatic update settings on either OS, then maybe your logic is correct. But you should also remember that people like myself who have paid over $2000 for the elite computing experience also have expectations. My expectation is that my problems will be fixed, and they will be fixed fast. Not several months after the issues arise.

well given that scrolling with chrome was fine pre Retina, im thinking that the whole machines graphic is slow across.. dont you think that the whole system is a bit sluggish with the retina?

I'm quite happy with retina-optimized programs, but unfortunately most of said programs are Apple's own. For instance, open a PDF in preview. Then open it in adobe reader. The difference is night and day. Photoshop cs6 on the other hand is a much better experience. I think we just gotta wait through the growing pains of other companies adopting retina and improving the experience.

There's probably like one guy who is maintaining 10.8 right now. Everyone else is on 10.9 and iOS.
