If you own a mac pc, you most likely want to get your ‘paws’ on this one. iMore.com has a slew of information on the new OS. Here is an insert from the post.

Familiarity is the key. Familiarity is a feature. Though they share many of the same underpinnings, OS X and iOS are very different animals. (One’s a big cat, for starters.) Yet Apple understands that, for the user, the interface and the experience is the app. So with Mountain Lion, they’ve made more of the OS X interface and experience more closely match iOS than ever. Which makes sense, given the iOS user base not only dwarfs the OS X user base, but consists of the very users Apple wants to reach most — those for whom traditional computers have always been inaccessible, intimidating, and off-putting.

Here is the description of the OS from apple.com, “OS X Mountain Lion is the latest release of the world’s most advanced desktop operating system. Mountain Lion includes over 200 new features to update your Mac into the best computing experience yet. With the new Messages app you can send text, photos, videos, contacts, web links, and documents to anyone using another Mac, iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch — you can even start a conversation on one device and continue it on another. The new Share button makes it easy to share files, web pages, photos, and videos, as well as tweet right from the app you are using. With the Reminders app you can create to-do lists and alerts that appear in the new Notification Center. With Notes you can write down all your ideas and even speak your words with voice dictation. Play head to head games on your Mac with friends on their Macs or iOS devices with Game Center. And with iCloud built in, it’s simple to keep all your mail, contacts, calendars, reminders, notes, to do lists, music, photos, iWork files, PDFs, and more up to date across all your devices.”

All that for 19.99, not bad… you can go here to purchase it, if your on a Mac of course! :)

iMore goes on to explain iCloud, built-in apps, Calendars and Contacts, Messages, Notes and Reminders, and on and on, its quite a large article. I have never really used a Mac OS for an extended period of time, but history states that its a pretty solid OS. Go here to read the original post.
