New Poll: What grade would you give Mountain Lion?
Authored by: Robert McMahan on Aug 01, '12 09:20:55AM

RSS was removed. Using an RSS reader slows me down--it is slower and takes more steps on certain web pages, like when I want to save a page to Evernote for reading later.

My late 2009, Core i5, 27" iMac seems slower--I seem to get a lot more spinning beach balls.

It also use more RAM--when I open the usual apps, I have less free RAM available and have to use Memory Cleaner sooner and more often. The only positive here is that with no RSS in Safari, I don't have so many windows/tabs open at one time, so it does not grab so much RAM.

Apparently Spotlight searching of network volumes hasn't been fixed.

I like Messages, notifications, more iCloud syncing, dictation, improved Address Book (Contacts).

Overall, its a solid update, numerous improvements, but, for me, the feature removals and decreased performance drops the grade from an "A" to a "B+".
