I don't understand all the resistence to OS upgrades. For the most part, Apple OS upgrades are mostly painless. This upgrade, from Lion to Mountain Lion has been TOTALLY painless for me. But then I keep all my applications up to date, and I don't run any old Power PC code anymore. I also keep a complete current backup of my main disk as well. And I keep my directory cleaned up with Disk Warrior. After the Mountain Lion upgrade, it feels as if everything in the computer is just running faster.

But there are a bunch of little improvements that if you open yourself up to the experience are truly useful. On the other hand, if you don't have an iPhone, and you will "never" buy and iPad, some of the new features will not have any appeal for you. Personally, with both and iPhone 4 and a New iPad, the cloud synching features, and WiFi synching features are amazing. If you ever like to display things from your computer on your large flat panel TV, airplay mirroring is just the ticket. Except for plugging in external disk drives, I'm running completely wirelessly now. Great upgrade.

Not interested in many of the new features either (still on 10.6) but have it downloading now (as I type) for the significant security upgrade, with automatic updates. It's something Apple has been slow to respond to in the past so I'm really glad to see it.

Only my opinion. It's worth what you paid for it. Your mileage may vary! ;-}
