The Obligatory Mountain Lion Poll
Authored by: astack on Jul 24, '12 12:32:44PM
I want to stay as far away from Mountain Lion as I can get. I am not going to get what I want however: I have to use a macbook air for work that came with Lion on it and you can't install snow leopard without doing some tricks (I have not attempted to do so since the laptop is for work). However, of the five other computers I manage at home or at work that I currently use, I have upgraded none to Lion and am still using Snow Leopard.

I have been warned that Apple will be dropping support for Snow Leopard soon, I will be forced to upgrade the work computers to a supported OS, which means Lion or Mountain Lion. For every step forward in Lion, there is a step backward because in several cases they took functionality that was useful and not broken and "fixed" it by replacing it with a fancier method that wasn't as useful. My personal annoyances include: "save as" vs. duplicate, ical (need I say more?), pointless animations in the Finder and other apps, and the ridiculous scroll bars. But everyone else has their list of grievances with Lion as well...

My further problem is that I don't see anything in Mountain Lion that fixes these, except by at least including the key combination for save as again. Beyond that, I see little benefit to upgrading. I am not a happy Apple customer right now.
