Harry C. Marks at Curious Rat says pretty much what I would about Apple’s Mountain Lion announcement. This bit in particular stands out:
There will be those who scoff and say Apple is simplifying OS X even more and that power users won’t like it. Those people aren’t seeing the big picture. Power users are the ones who bounce from iPhone to iPad to Mac every day and want feature-cohesion among those devices. Mountain Lion is bringing that to them.
Some people will look at Mountain Lion and see the “death of computing”. I look at it and see the closest thing yet to the computing experience that I’ve wanted since getting my first Macintosh over two decades ago.
