Mac Os X 10.8 Mountain Lion

They’re basically putting more and more iOS features onto their desktop OS.



they’re getting more serious about security (or just control). Look at this thing for example.…perSettings.png

That’s quite unexpected! While Lion has some features that really feel unpolished, I didn’t think they’d be pulling off something like this. All in all the new features seem a bit ‘meh’ for me… But if it fixes the launchpad usable, for example, I’ll probably give it a go.

One thing that bugged me on the sneak preview was that only a few months ago I just actually BOUGHT Growl from app store. Now it’s coming in natively. And with probably less supported apps and more confined customizing options. I just hope there isn’t some weird penalty for sticking with Growl…

I’ve been using computers since 1980.

I didn’t like Macintosh until 2003. Don’t kid yourself. Macintosh has been around since the 80s.

Been a happy Mac OS X user since 2003. G4, G5, Intel…

But, this is the last straw for me. My last Mac machine will be this Snow Leopard rig.

Bye bye gatekeeper and general incremental iOS shitiness.

Back to Linux.

obviously, it’s only been out of the gates 24 hours, but has anyone tried this with renoise yet?

I have a MacBook Pro which I use exclusively for work (I develop iOS apps) and I had to pay 29€ in order to upgrade from 10.6 to 10.7 for the sole purpose of being able to compile iOS5 applications.

as a bonus, I got the ability to perform cut and paste of files and directories, which Apple finally discovered to be an useful feature after 25 years.

I really hope I should not pay again to get… what!?

Renoise 2.8 64bit version is working fine on my MBP mid 2010 using Mountain Lion.
