- Ease of use Mountain Lion builds on the ease of Lion. Ease of use is improved for "regular" users at the expense of power users in some cases.
- Speed The speed of the new safari is crazy fast, Chrome used to be fast, but is slowing down, it's nice to see improvements like this still coming.
- Configurability Same point here as ease of use, the configurability is lacking in some cases as a trade off for making it easy to use for "regular" users.
- Ecosystem (apps, drivers, etc.) iCloud integration is getting so much better and a welcomed change to keep all my stuff up to date.
- Openness Gatekeeper is kinda limited in my opinion, 3 option are not enough, I want to be able to override at the app level, not just make me turn on all "unsigned" apps
Mountain Lion is definitely worth the upgrade for the iCloud enhancements alone!
