MacJury #1210: The MacJury Enter Their First Impressions of Mountain Lion Into Evidence


Members of The MacJury convened to compare notes and share their first impressions of the newest Mac OS, Mountain Lion, less than 48 hours after release. Their experiences demonstrate the importance of multiple backups when performing a major upgrade, even if the upgrade itself is flawless. The bumps in the road, application upgrades, favorite features, what isn’t working exactly as expected and a whole lot more are shared by the panel of Jeff Carlson, Pat Fauquet, Katie Floyd, Jeff Gamet, and host Chuck Joiner.

The video version of this episode is available on MacVoicesTV.
