My two;

Start up and shut down times seem really long compared to what one typically experiences with Macs.

Geekbench scores between Mountain Lion, Windows 7 and Windows 8 are very close. The thing that bothers me is that ML seems so unresponsive compared to either Windows version. On Windows I click an icon and the app jumps into operation. Doing the same in ML results in the icon bouncing a few times, then the app opens at a slower pace.

The slow Mac response is the same whether on my MBP, MP or mini all of which have ML and Windows as well as Photoshop, Office, VLC, DPP and Hanbrake for both OSs.

I'm glad someone said this. I have major CSS rendering anomalies in Safari 6. I also have slow wakeup times and UI lag but honestly, I don't even care about any of those if my rMBP can't surf the net for s***.

Probably that would be impossible. I have a rMPBP, it is a dream machine but anyway with that super high resolution, lag could occasionally show especially in demanding apps.

I agree it can be quite slow to open some Mac apps compared to Windows. An SSD of some sort is needed. On a modern MacBook Air things are next to instant in OS X. But i guess that means these things are even quicker in Windows (haven't tried Windows 7 or 8 on a computer with an SSD drive).

For the love of GOD let me close my laptop and have it turn into a single-display computer when it's plugged into my Thunderbolt display.

I assure you, there is no linen while using VLC's fullscreen option.

I can do this with HDMI, I'm pretty sure it can be done with thunderbolt.

What's with all the "Please, fix this, and that..."?
Do you think Apple is reading this?
Email Apple directly.

I feel like I'm reading Santa Claus letters to North Pole. :-)

They have been seeded (preview shown).

They haven't been released yet, just like 10.8.3

Nothing earth shattering to report. Ran a few system tests, examined app's mentioned in change-log, seems small fixes thus far.

On another note, "Game Center" on OS X just needs to go.

I am running 10.8.3 on a rMBP 13' - I was pretty determined to install 10.8.2 earlier, and decided to upgrade to 10.8.3. to give it a try. (Almost) Every time I put the computer on sleep there is a bizarre issue where the Safari window and dock become completely transparent - except for text.

New AMD Drivers

As predicted by Netkas, 10.8.3 contains working drivers for a whole new generation of AMD cards.

AMD 7xxx cards now work.

AN interesting development.

That is interesting.

Anything else interesting to report on the graphics side of things? AMD driver version vs 10.8.2, GL Extensions etc.

Where do you think the idea of "Waking up" comes from? Waking up takes a few seconds.
