Apple brags that OS X Mountain Lion boasts more than 200 new features. Even though that number involves some creative counting, there are a lot of impressive additions. Here are 14 of the most important.
Two of the changes to Calendar in Mountain Lion will be immediately obvious. On the aesthetics side, Apple has gotten rid of the gaudy faux stitching. The program's interface still tries a bit too hard to look like a physical desk calendar, but the new look is a bit more subtle. The bigger change - and the one that will likely be the most welcome by iCal's critics - is that Calendars in Mountain Lion brings back the dedicated calendars sidebar. Instead of requiring that you click a button to view your list of calendars, Calendars provides that list, organized by calendar type, in a sidebar on the left side.
