- Ease of use It's OS X. Intuitive and fairly clean design, even after all this time.
- Speed Some animations feel like they slow down the OS.
- Configurability Standard fare for OS X, and new features like Notification Center have a good amount of options.
- Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.) Mac App Store is great, and drivers and things download automatically.
- Openness It's a desktop OS in 2012, it's as open as anything else.
Mountain Lion is a good, though not great release of OS X. It doesn't add much to Lion, though what it does add is very useful, especially Notification Center.
