Can I upgrade from 10.7.5 to 10.8.2?
I have upgraded my macbook air os from 10.6.4 to 10.7.5 recently. I want to upgrade my os to latest stable release 10.8.2. I have tried "Software Update" option, but it doesn't work for me as the update utility tells me that all my softwares are up to date. Does it mean that I have to get a 10.8.2 version DVD and the over-write my existing operating system?
Please help me out. Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Software update, upgrade--what's the difference?

thanks for replies, guys! I am just gonna go and jump outta window outta shame! Well, I admit it, I just made the transition from being a windows user to a mac user and the length of that time span is 4/5 days! So you can take any wild guess at my common sense about Mac. And yeah, it's a century old MacBook Air that I got from a friend who din't need it anymore! :P

The digit after the 10 (6, 7, 8, whatever) identifies the major OS version. These also go by names of cats: Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, and Mountain Lion for 10.8. New major versions come out every year or so. They're not free, unless you got a new computer within a short time before a new one came out.
The next digit (the 5 in 10.7.5) is a minor upgrade or update, like a Windows service pack. Those are free once you have the corresponding OS version.
