No, don't upgrade first. Cause Mountain Lion just released for not even a month, still quite buggy and many are complaining in the forum regarding to battery life and graphic issues. 4 of us upgrade to Mountain Lion and 3 knocked a few issues, but mostly on graphics. Now my brother kinda regret. So don't do it first, wait for awhile then you will be happier with your new machine.

Hold your horses dude. My iMac and MBP having graphics glitches when playing games neither in Mac or Bootcamp with Windows. Sometimes screen even slashed into half and freezed. Wake up from sleep also have graphics issues, like I need to use the crusor to oaint out the grey login screen, if not, it will stay white. Slowly moving the crusor will paint back the grey background. All this happened on Mountain Lion and I'm looking for ways to get back to Lion.

"Thank you Is OS X Lion a very bad OS X?" No. We don't know what your work is but I would stick with Lion and get some experience with your new MBP. Then in the future should you wish to upgrade then do it.

    homeboy9991 if you have an issue and would like to post it start a new topic rather than threadjacking the OP's. Your response has nothing to do with what the OP is looking for.

  • homeboy9991 Level 1 Level 1

    I'm telling the OP the problem and ask him get rid from upgrading to Mountain Lion. Since he asked if he should or not. So I just telling him consequences, which he might encounter after upgrade. No offend. Sorry.

    That's YOUR problem, not THE problem. Post your problem in the appropriate forum area and folks here will try to help.

    Anyway, I'm just kindly letting him know what will be happened if he upgraded to Mountain Lion. So far I think he should keep using Lion, untill further updates are being released. If I don't tell him the consequences, he might not understood why he shouldn't upgrade.

    Again, it's your issue. Don't make it out to be universal. Many users are running ML without "consequences."

    Thank You I got your point as to what will be the problems if I upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion Hope they will release new updates as soon as possible and let me know if those have solved as what you told me Thank You

    Thank You for your Kind information

    Just a caution when reading this forum for ML information ...

     

    Over 3 million have downloaded ML.  Count the number of "complaints and b*tching" like some in this thread, and you will find the number in the thousands.  Simple math will tell you how many users have enough of an issue, real or imagined, to actually say so.  Most users who are happy are too busy just using it to say anything.

     

    Now, as a reminder, you can download ML and load it on an external drive.  That way you can play with it to see what issues *you* may have based on your specific uses.  Of course external drives will respond more slowly than internal drives, but you should know if certain applications do not open.

     

    Also, check this site for applications that simply do not work under ML as "research": http://roaringapps.com/apps:table
