Snippet: John Gruber on OS X Mountain Lion ☇

Shared on July 25, 2012

I first heard about Mountain Lion from Macworld and John Gruber, so it’s only fitting to check in with what he has to say about Apple’s newest operating system—his opening paragraph even makes me a bit nostalgic:

It seems like another era, but back in the ’00s, major new-cat-name updates of Mac OS X were a big deal. They were packed with major new features, new built-in apps, significant performance improvements, and often sported refreshed system-wide UI appearances (the long slow fading out of the 10.0 horizontal stripes; the meteoric rise and ignominious demise of our old friend Brushed Metal). We waited in line at Apple Stores to buy them.
