Can't take it anymore. Bought a copy and downloading. I have tonight to play for a bit, but busy tomorrow.

Xsilva's Lightspeed is compatible with Mountain Lion, I'm good to go on my new MacBook Air.

I really want to buck the trend and update right away because I hear ML is much better than lion. But I need to hear about CS6, coda, vmware4 etc. first.

thx, I read that, but I need to make sure. I know you shouldn't update a production machine that quickly, but after being a little meh on lion, I need a good fix.

I'll have to say that from a completely non-technical point of view.. apple seems to have avoided all the Loin mistakes and provided a much refined OS.. the only nag is that we have to wait for the iOS 6 for some features to be fully function-able!!

hey, did you get to burn it on a single layer DVD? the disk image is about 4.4gb, while an empty DVD can only hold 4.38gb...

Or to go a bit further back, such users as my wife's PPC that can only use Leopard 10.5.8 as the latest supported OS X.

It's called money, and if needed to upgrade further, one needs to purchase a later fully supported Intel Mac.

Then start a search for a SL 10.6.x install disk etc. if the user doesn't have access to any OS X 10.6.x install stuff.

Well PC support ended a long time ago. So that's a bit of a lost cause. But there's a lot of Core2Duo machines that support Lion that can't support ML. (Like anything with a GMA950 for instance... which is probably millions of machines (MacBooks and Minis for 2+ years)

BTW Install Time on a Recent Mac =

Agreed, and most of them still work well for most stuff without the "latest and greatest" OS X version installed.

But to get the latest, it comes down to money to upgrade.

The bottom basis it seems these days - it all comes down to money!

And many don't have the option or can even afford a newer Mac and it seems a bit odd to me that there isn't more Apple support for such machines available.

But it reminds me a bit of my old G4 PPC 733GHz Quicksilver that Apple said No to a later OS install, but a few documented hacks and a clone and it the later Mac OS X ran fine for ages.

Maybe there are some similar methods available to get the Apple "unsupported" Intel C2D updated. Even if some small graphic hardware thing etc. isn't completely supported.

Hmmm...???
