Apple Releases OS X Mountain Lion

The difference between Apple and Microsoft? Apple announced OS X Mountain Lion in February and today you can buy the update for $20.

I feel like we’ve been waiting for Windows 8 to release for at least a year. It strikes me that Microsoft’s biggest problem is they aren’t nimble enough to compete in the current consumer tech landscape. It’s not that they don’t have a vision — they do — it’s just the game is moving faster than they are currently playing. They have the enterprise tech and money to sustain themselves, but what if their bet on Windows 8 fails?

That’s probably another story for another day. As for today, the two reviews you need to read regarding Apple’s new OS are from John Gruber and John Siracusa.
