Nothing I see here seems to be necessary. I guess I'm a bit of a traditionalist. I use the Mac as a full tilt production machine for design, production and extensive photoshop work. I really don't need a $6,000 iPhone. All of this stuff seems gimmicky and consumer oriented. Yes, I have an iPhone, and a Touch and I'm planning to buy an iPad, BUT, I don't need a Mac with bells and whistles that aren't necessary. It seems Apple has forgotten the folks that got them where they are, in favor of a much more consumer driven product.

Catamount, you say? A Mountain Lion does have a lot of aliases. Cougar, Panther and Puma all come to mind. Two of those names have already been used. Lynx and Bobcat are not doing it for me.

I'm still waiting on Ocelot. I'm sure Ubuntu wouldn't mind. Napoleon Dynamite fans will want an OS X Liger.


Liger would be sweet.

Serval? Puddy Tat? Garfield?

I'd like to see AirPlay directed towards a mac, i.e. the mac mirrors what's on my iOS device. I use an iMac and have a mini attached to the TV. The only thing missing on the mac is AirPlay but that wouldn't sell apple TVs. While we're wishing, screen sharing should be able to share audio and iTunes should be able to send audio to other macs.

I'd be happy if they just fixed Mail so it plays well with Exchange. After that, getting iCal to be more Exchange friendly would also be preferred, including making it so I can delete appointments without notifying the whole @#$% planet! Features??? Heck, I just want what I have to work properly.

The ONLY feature I'm really looking for is 'disable auto-save'
Not having a 'don't save prompt' is still, after all these months, wreaking havoc with my workflow.
Sadly, it doesn't seem that's going to happen.

Fortunately, developers outside of Apple seem to recognize the current implementation sucks and are in no rush to support it.


The only thing I want to see in Mountain Lion is save as. The rest of what I see in Mountain Lion is unwanted eye candy and I got more than enough of that in Lion. I see absolutely nothing about the five

Changes so far announced, Just more change for the sake of change that ignores the consequences to the work flows of people who use Macs for something other than a toy.

One nice thing I like about Mountain Lion: Command-Shift-S is now mapped to Duplicate, so that it's more Save As-like.

The removal of the calendar/mini calendars in Lion was a deal-breaker for me to not install it on my work MBP, so I'm really pleased to see that feature will be brought back. Now, if they'd just add back Save As...

I'm so excited!!!!

This integration of the 2 most advanced Operating Systems on the planet, is going to show everyone how it SHOULD be done.

Wait till I show all my friends my Mac running all my iOS apps transparently.

No clumsily having to go through a browser to connect to and open all my Pages documents.

Those PC users will be sooooo jealous!

Wish list: how about a pref to toggle "auto-save"?

Press duplicate, then duplicate & revert. It does the exact same thing as save as.

Can they put back the ability to search network drives?

Totally shameful that a company looking to make money would cater to the larger audience group

Is there any way to add annotations to pdfs in preview? I've been trying for about an hour with no success, but I can see my old annotations and the new view is pretty nice; I'm definitely being stupid and missing something--how do I add a new one (not necessarily highlighting text)?
