I just discovered a hidden "feature" in Mountain Lion on accident or not. if you click on the apple logo on the on the menu bar, and hold the ALT button, "About This Mac" becomes "System Information." I'm sure there's several people on here who knew about it, but I'm sure there are some who didn't. I didn't until just now by accident

I only knew of ALT changing the GO menu to add the Library option
There are many uses for it, such as pressing Option while right-clicking an app on the Dock to change the option from Quit to Force Quit, or when right-clicking a file to change from "Get Info" to "Show Inspector".
