Mountain Lion grade

ML for the most part is fine, but ti has bugs. Some surprising.

USB DisplayLink driver is unsupported now...why? 10.7 to 10.8 was fairly minor. They released a new driver...back to mostly functional.

Drag and drop an attachment out of Mail, it drops on the desktop 1920 pixels to the right of my drop. Really annoying. guess they forgot to offset the left monitor in their drop pixel calculation...

cmd-delete to delete an item in the Finder now auto selects another item for you after your first item goes to the trash...and key repeat keeps it going randomly deleting many files when you had only intended one. Watch out!

Eclipse suddenly now no longer scrolls my line numbers. Worked perfect in 10.7, 10.6, 10.5...but 10.8...its broken. Can't spend the time updating all my stuff to a newer slower version of Eclipse.

And Safari has done many crazy things on me...a browser restart fixes them, but frustrating all the same. Hard to explain them, but mouse clicks don't go where expected, offset vertically int he wrong place sometimes, and other weird rendering, and freezing loading issues.

Mail sometimes just can't handle a message. Happens on reply. Fix is to close message, delete draft, and try again.

Mail halts displaying incoming messages while an outgoing message is being sent... For me, that can be problematic when SMTP server is running slow for some reason and I hear my iPhone dinging that I just received 3 other new messages and i can't get to them.

Most things are fine...but 10.7.4 was more refined.
