Installed and running beautifully on my 2007 iMac. A noticeable improvement performance wise over Lion. Spotlight indexing really made my Mac crawl at first (which is expected), but the indexing dash inside the Spotlight icon disappeared before the actual indexing finished. Only after searching something in Spotlight was I able to see the progress bar showing me how much longer the indexing was going to take. Bug? Anyways, after that process completed and 1 more restart, my 5 year old Mac is felling brand new. Very impressed with everything and the smoothness is fantastic. Love the new dock and the lights. Would have paid just for that. LOL

Hm, I wonder what about my 2006.5 iMac which is not Mountain Lion compatible? If I ever need to reinstall Mac OS that is.

I did burn a bootable install DVD from the download file but I'm bound to lose that disc sooner or later.

Things are definitely snappier

Without taking a stopwatch to it, my 2010 iMac definitely feels faster.

My only hiccup is that Safari now won't connect to Facebook or Apple/Discussions, (I've posted a new thread looking for help.)

But overall, the update feels good.

I went from Lion to Mountain Lion. Installation took about 35 minutes. There's a definite increase in speed on both my iMac and my Mini. Everything feels much more snappy. I definitely like the new look of the dock. Notifications is a little distracting, so I'll have to get used to it.

Waiting a few hours already for my code..

No worries as I was already running the (legit) GM, but it's also a free install on other (family) computers.

Can't wait to start playing! Airplay from Mac is the biggest featured I'm looking forward to.

Finally getting a chance to download Mountain Lion. Entered in my code in the Mac App Store and it says, "This code has already been used. Each code may only be used once."

What the?????

I have certainly not used this code yet.

Matters not as I still have the install .dmg on my disk for Lion from making the USB install stick I made for Lion as well as ML.

What about the (admittedly small) group of people who are still on Snow Leopard and have a Machine that'll run Lion, but not Mountain Lion?
