    Just had a play and I'll be very surprised if it isn't free. All you get for your $30 is notification centre, integrated Twitter and a bunch of iOS features like Notes and Reminders with much better, more advanced alternatives already available? iMessages is good but that's already available for Lion, same goes for the updated Safari. At this stage I'm thoroughly unimpressed that Apple decided to go ahead with another OS release already.
    :P

    Can Anyone confirm if ML will run on intergrated intel graphics(GMA X3100) yet? I'd love to try my self but I don't have a OSX developer program.

    Hey man. TUAW have made a post about which Macs it will run on. So if you check it out it might answer your question. http://i.tuaw.com/2012/02/16/mountai...er-mac-models/

    Stez, reckon you could pull the Mountain Lion wallpaper and upload it somewhere for me? All I can find on google is low res ones.

    Cheers,


    EDIT: Don't worry, managed to find one online.

    I know That I am not officially supported but I have read on an a few Websites that they had been aparantly able to run ML on the 'unsupported macs' so all I was wondering was if any one on Mac talk had managed to Mac it work.

    Seems quite stable for a first beta, most apps run fine. The only one I've had trouble with so far is Evernote.

    I don't think it's gonna be free. The Messages beta app for Lion will prompt to, quote, "purchase" mountain lion after the beta expires. If these are the only features they're gonna add, then they won't be getting my money.

    If I get stability then they'll get my money, for the cost of Apple operating systems post leopard i'm not complaining if I don't get heaps of new features because cheaper more frequent updates are better than $250 or however much windows 7 is for a load of stuff and nothing in the meantime.

    I would have liked them to focus on making Mountain Lion a fast version of Lion but instead they focused on adding iOS features. Boot up and shut down speeds have suffered since Lion, including a whole host of other things. If it wasn't for full-screen apps, launchpad and a whole host of other minor features I would still to using Snow Leopard.
    :P

    Think the most interesting thing about this release is not the possible cost or the built in apps (even though that new safari search merge is well beyond due).

    Its actually the fact that due to this now being 64bit only it will mean that they will need to update programs such as Logic to be 64bit only 9.1.6 still boots up as 32bit.

    Could we see a reduced price app store only 64bit Logic X soon?

    Did you upgrade from SL or do a fresh install for Lion? If you upgrade, try fresh install.

    So it will be incredibly like iOS.

    In fact the only way you will be able to tell them apart is it won't let you run iOS apps on it.

    That's central planning for you!

    A lot of people are completely mis-understanding what Mountain Lion is and need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

    Mountain Lions does does not represent the 'iOS-ification' of OS X. Mountain Lion is not the first (or second) step towards the replacement of OS X by iOS. Apple is pushing for a single eco-system, but iOS isn't that ecosystem.

    No, mountain Lion represent the iCloud-ification of Apple's ecosystem.

    Notes and reminders aren't being released on Mountain Lion because iOS has them. They are being being released because iCloud has them. Notes and reminders represent a step towards feature parity for devices that connect to iCloud.

    Same with notification centre. It's not on Lion because iOS has it, it's there because it is a logical addition for a multi-device accessible, cloud based ecosystem that pushes content to each device.

    Tim Cook himself has said that it is iCloud, not iOS, that is central to Apple's strategy for the next decade. Expect to see over the next few years, yearly iterations of both iOS and OS X with increasing integration of iCloud functionality and features across all of Apple's devices.

    Personally, I am looking forward to the time where my entire computing eco-system is in the cloud and I can jump on any of my machines and continue working exactly where I left off utilising interfaces best designed for the method of interaction I am using.

    Agreed,

    Splitting the notes out of Mail is long overdue and splitting the Reminders out of iCal is a nice touch as well. It's not about making it more iOS-like but rather unifying some areas and allowing syncing across the board in a simple and familiar way.

    Having said that, I hope they focus ML on performance and stability to get the very best out of the available hardware.
