Apple released “OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion,” the latest version of its mobile operating system last week, and as per recent reports, the new OS has indeed managed to get the initial popularity among millions of Apple fans around the world.
Mountain Lion has many features from the iPhone and iPad, including a notification system so text messages sent to those devices will also show up on a Mac computer.
The update comes with a number of new features, including “AirPlay” that allows you to view your computers screen on an Apple TV, “Messages” for sending and receiving iMessages on your Mac, “Notification Center,” “PowerNap” for receiving software updates during sleep and support for speech to text dictation, among others.
Roaring in support of the latest Apple Macintosh operating system, NES Software today announced Apple OS X Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) is now supported in WinOnX, the application that makes it possible for Apple Macintosh computers to run Microsoft Windows software quickly, easily and affordably.
The system can also integrate with social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and Vimeo, so companies that use social media marketing can make sharing easier and more streamlined.
The supported devices include the iPhone 4S, iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 3, iPad 2, iPad 1, Apple TV 2G and the iPod touch third and fourth generation on iOS 5.1.1.
Dubbed Mountain Lion, the new software narrows the gap between the Computer and phone software packages, making Mac personal computers work more like iPhones and iPads.
And finally, Apple’s new Gatekeeper platform aims to make downloading software from the internet safer, especially for companies that don’t have an excess of IT resources.
Alternative solutions, meanwhile, require Mac users to buy and install a copy of Microsoft Windows, at a minimum, as well as virtualization software if they want to run Windows apps and Mac apps at the same time.
Though most businesses have stuck with Windows operating systems through the years, the new OS from Apple could at least be worth a second look.
In addition to Mountain Lion, WinOnX sharpens its claws with support for multiple virtual environments of the Windows operating system as well as the MacBook Pro Retina display.
Chitika says that based on the 66 million Mac users Apple claims it has, it can infer 2.1 million Mac owners have already upgraded to Mountain Lion.
