    God dammit, I wish they finally fix the memory management in 10.7.6 or 10.8.5. My RAM is getting used up for nothing.

    10.7.6 or 10.8.5 not sure I follow ...

    Just a suggestion, try running in safe mode (boot with shift key held) and compare RAM usage assuming 'used up' you mean 'allocated'. If 'used up' means 'fast draining' perhaps you need a new battery. My 2010 MBP really improved after a new battery. On top of that stick in an SSD as a boot drive. That makes a huge difference to everything.

    mmm ... well I think my own personal head RAM is ok ... lol ... I checked my logs and it seems my FiOS connection had a wee fit for about five seconds at the exact moment I posted. It must have looped the send. I've never seen happen that before. I would have though the blog would have rejected duplicate posts anyway.

    I'm just glad I wasn't posting something I'd regret later! :D

    If this update doesn't fix the lack of DDC/CI communication to monitors driven by nVidia cards, it'll screw over a lot of designers, filmmakers, and photographers who haven't been able to calibrate their non-Apple monitors since Mountain Lion.  It's ridiculous this is still broken.

    They need to correct the changes they made to reminders, and most of all to Safari's activity monitor. UPGRADE means to improve..... not castrate. :(

    I'm sorry, but older versions of OS X seemed much better than this current catastrophe.


    Please no flames. Just being honest.

     

    No offense taken. Some systems have issues with it no doubt. I myself experienced the battery life issue on my MBP but others have not. Not sure if they fixed it or if I have just gotten used to charging it more often. Other than that though it had been a pretty solid upgrade for me.

    I do really hope they have fixed the bug that I and several others have filed where ethernet bonding does not simply work at all in 10.8


     


    Generally 10.8 has been my best OSX thus far, but this issue has caused me to "upgrade" our file server back to 10.6.8 to get this working again.


     


    There is also an issue which is very hard to trace with video tearing in Final Cut Pro 7 in 10.8 - I imagine the solution is "use FCPX" but we are not ready to do so yet.


     


    My worry is that the network bonding is a big clanger of a bug that has been known about since 10.8.0 however has not been addressed after both 10.8.1 and 10.8.2. As this does not seem to be an issue in 10.7, I am unsure why this even came about.


     


    Another sign that that the focus is not on anything in the Pro/Server/Small Business arena at present, as far as bug fix priority goes.
