Apple really doesn't give much of a crap any more. I had literally hundreds of open and abandoned bugs in Radarweb (some going back to OS 8 that were never resolved) when I tossed in the towel testing for them. As you point out it's more about redeeming iTunes gift cards than it is about getting things fixed up and working. Apple has abandoned the pro market almost completely. Don't stay too attached to Logic ... with luck Apple will spin off Logic like they did Filemaker otherwise there's gonna be a lot of pissed off muzos when they abandon it.
I hope there is one for me, I've been suffering Audio Stuttering with Mountain Lion, after a lot of reinstalls, reboots, pram resets, I came to the conclusion that I needed to reload my Lion. Paying for a license from Carbon Copy Clone was the best move I ever made.
After about an hour of steady music last night I did NOT hear an audio glitch! I'm really hoping this is truly fixed, and my 2011 iMac can use Mountain Lion and iTunes at the same time
