    Love it so far!

    especially dictation, Notification Center, Launchpad search and all these other little things I've encountered so far. And it's soooo zippy :)

    It's either a great triumph for Mountain Lion… Or an admission that nobody was particularly attached to Lion.

    Running it on both my MBP and my iMac. I had a small wake-from-sleep issue on the iMac which was resolved by resetting the SMC. Apart from that no issues at all. Everything works at least as well as it did under Lion :)

    My late 2008 MBP doesn't get some of the marquee features but I will admit it seems to run much faster/smoother now, especially safari. I didn't even do a clean install.

    It's installed and running. But Apple, now go and fix all those bugs.

    I still have nothing to complain about with Lion (except maybe the handling of full screen with two monitors). I can't upgrade my iMac to ML but I am not all that disappointed about that. Lion runs great. Mountain Lion just makes Lion that much better.

    Also, people complain about how Mountain Lion is not revolutionary and Apple are out of ideas but then in the same breath say how it is SOO much better than being stuck with Lion. I'm confused.

    I know this is probably not what you meant by your post, I am still venting from reading some posts in another forum.

    does that count the 7 downloads I performed before I actually got my ML to work properly?

    Installed it on a 2010 MBP and 2007 iMac. No go for our late '06 MB :(

    So far, so good. Great update, considering the cost.
