Apple's latest operating system was released today. It's available for just £13.99 / $19.99 and you can grab it from the Mac App Store via download.
As always, the question I always get asked is, 'do I need it?' And the short answer is: yes. If you want to be on board with the direction Apple is going with both their computing and mobile platforms, then you're going to want it.
As there have been so many reviews posted today by people far more capable than me that eek out every last detail and change Mountain Lion brings, rather than saying much more myself, I thought I'd simply link to some of the reviews I've been reading.
- John Siracusa - If it's (extremely) thorough and geeky you're looking for in a review, then there's no one better than John. Just make sure you set aside a decent amount of time!
- John Gruber - Not too long and with his usual astute observations, Gruber is always worth a read. Some helpful tips on Documents in the Cloud too.
- Jason Snell - Jason's Macworld review is a great overview of all the key new features that come with Mountain Lion. You won't go far wrong starting here.
- Apple Website - And, of course, if you haven't already, take a look at Apple's own overview of all the new features.
