Apple os x mountain lion

Wow. It looks like Apple owners are really keen on upgrading their operating systems. The Cupertino-based tech giant says that downloads of its latest OS Mountain Lion have topped three million in the first four days its been available.

According to the folks down at 1 Infinite Loop, this makes is the most successful iteration of OS X in history.

“Just a year after the incredibly successful introduction of Lion, customers have downloaded Mountain Lion over three million times in just four days, making it our most successful release ever,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

As The Next Web notes however, that doesn’t mean that Apple’s raked in the OS’ asking price of US$19.99 three-million times. After all, one payment allows for downloads to multiple machines if they’re tied to the same Mac App Store account.

There have also reportedly been a couple of hiccoughs among all those downloads. Some users trying to take part in a programme that allowed owners of recently purchased Macs to grab the app for free reported “code has been used” errors when trying to redeem their downloads.

Mountain Lion comes with a raft of changes including Twitter integration (with Facebook coming soon), voice dictation and an iOS-style notification centre.
