Mountain Lion Roars! 3 Million Downloads in Four Days

Upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion yet? More than 3 million of your friends and neighbors have, and the reviews have been overwhelming positive

Upgraded to OS X Mountain Lion yet? More than 3 million of your friends and neighbors have, and the reviews have been overwhelming positive. Further, whereas some folks taking part in the Mac Up to Date program have experienced invalid code problems — i.e. people whining they’re not getting their free stuff fast enough — very few people are reporting technical issues of any kind.

Apple has announced OS X Mountain Lion has been downloaded over 3 million times — that’s not a huge, head slapping number (i.e. first weekend iPhone 4S sales topped 4 million), but very respectable nonetheless.

“Just a year after the incredibly successful introduction of Lion, customers have downloaded Mountain Lion over three million times in just four days, making it our most successful release ever,” said Philip Schiller, senior vice president, Worldwide Marketing.

For Apple’s highly affordable $20 asking price, which gets you from Snow Leopard or Lion to the latest version, users get some interesting and, frankly, damned useful features, including Dictation, Notifications, iCloud integration, Reminders, Messages, Notes and a butt tonne more.

So have you upgraded to Mountain Lion? Are you liking what Apple’s selling?

I regret getting Mountain Lion! It erased my old reliable Microsoft Office programs, and now i would have to get the 2011 version of MS Office if I want to use Word again.
I was caught up in the frenzy and the hype of this new OSX, and I hate for falling for it.
My YouTube videos were unwatchable and had to get the latest Flash Player update.
The lesson I learned is: If you have a program/system you are happy with, stay with it, leave it alone, and fall fall for the hype of “new, improved”
