The problem is that the full download is still showing up as an update after I install 10.8.1...so now the App Store has a constant 1 in the corner and is saying that I need to update the OS by installing the entire thing.

That kinda defeats the purpose of having small footprint updates and in using the App Store to update the system.

That's what i mean. Now that it's effectively a separate entity, it seems that there won't be a simultaneous release for both server and client anymore. It'll just be updated when they can be bothered. The ML Server app has quite a few issues, and 10.8.1 didn't update the Server app, so i'm hoping we'll see one soon.

Strange. Ive got a slower processor Intel Core i7 than you running Lion and I got a score of 1049.

That suggests ML is not as fast as Lion....

This is the first update, there's nothing to combine it with. There will be a combo updater for 10.8.2, presumably, which would contain the changes in 10.8.1 and 10.8.2. If you just mean a standalone update, it's available here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1571

Installed flawlessly on my Mid 2012 13" Air. I wasn't having any issues with 10.8 though.

My update was only 7.5MB, pretty small time. But I don't know if I'm a big fan of the using of the App Store to do updates, I liked the old system better

This is not new. It's been like this for years and years.

Note that all standalone Mac OS X updaters eventually show up here:

Again, nothing new.

Nope, still overwrites the original document.

Confusing!

I shows 2 updates available

There is one labeled "Software update" at 7.28 mb and

OSX Mountain Lion described as a 10.8.1 update.

That one shouldn't show up.

I did go through software update from the Apple menu .

Anyway they better relabel that to make it clear.
