    In line with yesterday's brief announcement that OS X Mountain Lion would debut today, Apple has officially launched its next-generation Mac operating system to the public. OS X Mountain Lion [Mac App Store] is priced at $19.99 and is available exclusively through the Mac App Store.

    OS X Mountain Lion brings a number of new features and enhancements to the Mac, including improved iCloud integration with support for Notes and Reminders, iMessage support via the new Messages application, Notification Center, Power Nap updating during sleep, Dictation, enhanced sharing tools, Game Center, improved security with Gatekeeper, and more.
    For users looking to deploy server capabilities, Apple will also be releasing OS X Mountain Lion Server as a $19.99 add-on via the Mac App Store.

    Update: Many users are reporting difficulties purchasing and downloading OS X Mountain Lion, undoubtedly due to heavy load on Apple's servers.

    Update 2: OS X Server is now available.

    Can anyone confirm if the release build is the same as the GM build (12A269)?
