  • Summary: The worlds most advance desktop operating system just got better with OSX Lion and now OSX Mountail Lion coming this summer just to top things off. Windows 8 to come in 2012 ass well... my prediction from my experience so farr: The change is good, hmmm...just not good enough. It seems as if Microsoft is trying to hard.
  • Pros: Best computing experience I ever had!
  • Cons: Nothing.

  • Summary: I was really looking forward to lion but my late 2010 macbook runs far slower on it. Also it now hangs on the login screen when resuming from sleep.
  • Pros: The fact that I can now do the most basic of function which is resize a window from any side
  • Cons: They did not change much. Saying applications like mail changed is nothing to do with the os, it was just released at the same time. It is like saying microsoft released a new outlook therefore its a new version of windows.

  • Summary: mostly good, but reversed scrolling isn't natural for a trackpad like it is with a touchscreen
  • Pros: slickness, autosave, reboots previously open windows when you reboot
  • Cons: reversed scrolling turns you insane and no way to change back with older mouse button laptops

  • Summary: It is vastly superior to Windows 7 which i have to use at work. It's like the super slick sports car thing you want to show off while Microsoft is the tractor in the barn. It is light years ahead of the opposition and the full screen options are a real benefit as is the swipe method on the flat mouse pad. But already it has glitches and hangs with no escape except a reboot despite a 2010 mac mini with 2.6 processors and 4 gig ram.
  • Pros: It's more like the iPad than a computer, I use this on my 2010 mac mini and it's a massive improvement especially the swipes and the full screen apps.
  • Cons: Despite 4GB of memory it frequently hangs and has to be rebooted to quit especially if your running two or more programmes.

  • Summary: All the bumph prior to Lion says you need and intel core duo II mac as a minimum. I've got that and the app store won't let me download it cos it says I don't have enough memory - even with the 2gb recommended. Rubbish. Another sycophantic article about Apple from CNetuk.
  • Pros: Nice reviews
  • Cons: needs too much memory

Apples neue Raubkatze - flink aber stellenweise wenig innovativ

  • Summary: == 1. Vorwort == Mit Mac OSX Mountain Lion hat Apple am 25.06.2012 die inzwischen achte Version seines Verkaufsschlages OSX herausgebracht. Das Betriebssystem steht somit in der Nachfolge von Lion und ist nur auf Apples hauseigenen Computern lauffähig. Apple setzt dabei seine Abkehr von optischen Datenträgern fort. Mountain Lion ist nur im AppStore per Download verfügbar, eine Version auf USB-Stick wie noch bei Lion wird es wohl nicht mehr geben.

Das OSX von Apple wird mit jeder Version besser und besser. Ich "liebe" OSX.

  • Summary: Leider kommt dieser Testbericht etwas spät. Denn in wenigen Wochen erscheint das neue OSX von Apple. Das hat dann die Versionsnummer 10.9 und nennt sich Mavericks. Die Katzennamen haben ausgedient. Aber nun zum aktuellen OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion. Seit Lion 10.7 heißt das Betriebssystem von nicht mehr Mac OS X, sondern einfach nur noch OS X. Ich hatte keine Lust nachzuforschen, warum das so ist. Und ehrlich gesagt: WHO CARES?
