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.
iOS users will immediately recognize Mountain Lion's new notification system - it's more or less the same one that debuted on iOS 5 last year. Longtime Mac users, on the other hand, will probably recognise its functionality as the same sort offered by the open-source framework Growl. In either case, the idea is simple: Lots of things happen on your Mac - emails, IMs, alarms, even Twitter updates. Notification Center gathers them in a single location, so you can quickly see at a glance everything you need to know.
