    So, who ever already have the dev preview of the up coming 10.8, anything that you guys hate?

    Do you find any glitches? Bugs?
    Something you hate about it?
    Something you cant do in ML but you can in Lion?
    Heavier than Lion? (I hear people say its not)

    Any opinion helps, Im still thinking whether I should buy it or not...
    I dont want to end up like Lion when there were so many bugs until 7.1 :(

    2 more days till the rumor release date :D

    The only thing that's annoyed me about ML so far is the inability to view how much time is left on your battery without clicking the icon along with a veeeeery slightly longer time taken to boot, for some reason. But that's a really minor thing - otherwise it's all-round equal to or better than Lion in my eyes.

    Thanks for the reply :)

    Oh I never really used the "Time left on battery" before but that does seem bit annoying.


    Is the inability to use 64bit only annoy you?

    It's been working great for me. I went right from Snow Leopard to Mountain Lion so I don't have Lion to compare to, but Mail is super snappy now and scrolling is amazingly fast. I haven't noticed too much in the way of problems. It's a great update and you can finally ungroup mission control windows!

    As far as the battery indicator goes, I have a Retina MBP and it never was present in Lion. Never understood why. It was however on my Air and 17in MBP.

    The new MacBook Pros got rid of the battery life indicator. My classic MacBook Pro 2012 doesn't not have the battery life indicator either.

    Is it more reliable than Lion? Lion on the MBPr does seem a bit rough around the edges, things give up at the drop of a hat and it crashes with the spinny rainbow surprisingly regularly, or is this just something I should get used to with OSX -- I've not used it before? Under Windows 7 Bootcamp it's solid as a rock, which would seem to show that the hardware is working fine.

    I rarely see the beach ball on Mountain Lion.

    It's handy to have things collect in notification centre versus growl where it's gone once the alert has shown. Although I wish that you could see the complete email right from within notification centre versus having to click on it to open it up in Mail.

    I see, do you see any difference between notification and growl?

    I had some issues (memory address errors) with jdk 1.5.0_30. Apart of 1.6.0_33, I hope jdk 1.4.2_22 and 1.5.0_30 will run fine in the final release.

    They both show notifications in a similar manor. The difference being that growl supports applications like Adium and would show you when people log on whereas notification centre would not. Notification centre keeps messages shown until you dismiss them whereas growl has them disappear after a few second. So there are a few differences but I prefer notification centre to growl now, the only downside for me being that you can't show the full email in notification centre itself.

    Ahh I see. I guess I'll keep my growl :D
    Thanks!
