With Apple’s new operating system just a few weeks away, Techland at TIME.com has a list of the 10 most important features arriving with Mountain Lion:
As Snow Leopard was to Leopard, Mountain Lion’s relationship to Lion is deceptively conservative, appearing at first blush all but identical to its predecessor, save for cosmetic refinements like the less glassy Dock think “frosted” or the extra icons in the menu bar. Almost all of what makes Mountain Lion what it is lies beneath its skin — the skin of a computer operating system still, of course, but one now harboring an interface that’s much more iOS-like, and whose watchword might as well be “unification.”
I for one am looking forward to Mountain Lion fixing some of the flaws with its predecessor. AirPlay support might make my MacBook Air the most used machine in the living room. Also very excited about Power Nap and iOS apps like Reminders and Notes coming to OS X.
