Less than a minute to purchase. Over 6 hours of overnight download time. Over an hour of installation. Another hour to explore, clean up, and reconfigure. My plastic MacBook (Mid 2009) which I call Rocket MacQueen is finally on Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Glad I skipped the previous version, I saved US$10!
While my MacQueen will not be getting all the 200+ new features as well as the 3-finger and other multi-touch gestures, I’m not complaining, it’s now snappy with its much needed software refresh.
It’s the familiar iOS goodness that I’m loving – Notification Center, Messages, Notes, Reminders, Game Center, iCloud, Twitter sharing and soon Facebook integration – now MacQueen is smarter than ever. Rawr!
