Wow, first time to write into a website and it was the subject of Snow Leopard that did it. I still use Snow Leopard, and for one reason — it just works. Sadly, Apple has forgotten the meaning. If Apple spent the time to get an OS right BEFORE releasing it, instead of having to fix, release and re-release a so-called new OS ever other week, no telling how more productive, and profitable we all could be.

That certainly applies to Snow Leopard.

Yeah, it was better than Leopard and yeah, it was way more stable than most of the crap that Craig Federighi has brought us. The Get Info window in Snow Leopard contained more relevant and useful information, especially about music files.

OS X Mountain Lion Pros and Cons, Is it worth it?:

Lion took a bit longer to launch applications, but loaded Websites faster, and was considerably faster in file compression. But the "iOSification" of the Mac continues to divide users. Infoworld's Galen Gruman detailed six " Lion Letdowns, " most of them related to this trend. Ten things that bug me. A successful example: Sure, you can create folders and rearrange them, but it's a lot of work to do something that the [previous version's] Dock and the Finder windows for your Applications folder and Utilities folder handle much better.

Another "letdown" is eliminating the traditional scroll bars in the application window. Using an Apple touch input device, Mac OS X makes the scroll bar disappear but it brings it back when it detects you're trying to scroll to see more of the contents. Not everyone agrees. Mac users in online forums say they think the "natural" scrolling matches the natural movement of a finger: He had upgraded to Lion from the much older Tiger release.
