Apple's emailed announcement of the new Mountain Lion OS X this week has been met with a mix of roaring applause and sharpened claws. In the new release:

"Send iMessages. Set reminders. Get notifications. Tweet right from the app you’re in. Go up against iOS gamers in Game Center. And with iCloud, your Mac works even better with your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Available now in the Mac App Store for just $19.99."

Despite designers dissecting fonts, developers discussing data, and the peanut gallery clamping down on bad punsCNET reports 2 millions downloads so far.
