Yeah remember that "underwhelming" Lion?

That was the operating system that delivered Core Storage which then delivered FileVault 2 whole disc encryption and what now delivers Fusion Drive in Mountain Lion.

We're seeing new capabilities because the OS is evolving at such a rapid pace. Is it bug free? No but nothing battle tests new hardware or software like actual live fire in the field.

Keep'em coming.

Technology changes happen everyday and 2-3 years for new operating system is too much.
windows maybe dominates the market but people suffer everyday and a new features every year for low price can make some people move and even integrate it with their iDevices.

Apple create eco system from pc, media players, phones, tablets and hopefuly tv soon :>

Well, the frequent small changes that apple does seems preferable to the huge changes some software vendors do that can really confuse some folks.

So where is the QuickSync (video decoding & encoding) support in Mountain Lion? Just in FaceTime & AirPlay?

Use Find Any File. Problem solved.

Not?
