update12d61Apple today seeded build 12D61 of OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3 to developers, marking the ninth beta iteration of the newest version of Mountain Lion. 10.8.3 was first seeded to developers back in November.

Build 12D61 has been released less than a week after build 12D58. The new build asks developers and testers to focus on AirPlay, AirPort, Game Center, Graphics Drivers, and Safari.

As with previous builds, Apple mentions that it has significantly improved WiFi performance, as noted by 9to5Mac. Registered developers can download the update on Apple’s Developer Page.

Then why on earth are you still on Lion? ML is far more polished, which you’ve certainly read a couple of thousand times.

I was going to ask the same thing. Who in their right mind would stay on Lion? You either come to ML or go back to SL.

Because Mountain Lion is more buggy than Lion at this point in time. Are you actually unaware of that?

It is not. ML runs amazingly well and Lion is the one that sucks. It’s your system that you need to work on.

Safari already feels snappier.

These comments were funny about 2 years ago………..kind of old and worn out now….:confused:

Safar…. damn beaten :mad:

As much as I want to ditch 10.7.5 Lion, I am hoping that Apple takes their sweet time with the 10.8.3 update. I don’t care about new features since lack of bugs is most important thing for me.

Mountain Lion might run amazing well for you, but for the majority of users, 10.7.5 is more stable and reliable than 10.8.0, 10.8.1, and 10.8.2. Yes, Lion does suck, and Mountain Lion has the potential to be better than Lion, but as of 10.8.2, Mountain Lion still has far more bugs than 10.7.5.

For your information, I own the latest 13″ MacBook Pro, and it’s maxed out with 16GB of Crucial-brand RAM.

Having the latest system doesn’t mean anything. I didn’t say you had a low powered system, I said you need to work on your system. Probably stuff you have installed doesn’t agree with ML.
I have 5 Macs in my house including my family that have Macs with ML. No issues. I’m on this forum quite a bit and I don’t see many threads of any major issues with ML, in fact around the web ML has gotten very good reviews. Since you said the “Majority” are having problems with ML, I’m going to Macworld SF tomorrow and Friday. I will ask the major podcasters that are friends of mine and I’ll ask the vendors there of their experience with ML.

This is just pure false. ML is far more stable, more secure, and faster than Lion by a wide margin. Frankly, I’m pretty shocked to hear anyone suggest otherwise. ML’s vast superiority to Lion is pretty well documented fact by the vast majority.

Mountain Lion might run amazing well for you, but for the majority of users, 10.7.5 is more stable and reliable than 10.8.0, 10.8.1, and 10.8.2. Yes, Lion does suck, and Mountain Lion has the potential to be better than Lion, but as of 10.8.2, Mountain Lion still has far more bugs than 10.7.5.

I don’t think you actually speak for a majority of users.

Another one? Then the final one should be great
