Still ugly & not a significant improvement on 10.7.

Wacom website - most irritating site I've visited to date.

Tried trial for about 10 days - worse. Slower on my iMac (7,1) than CS6 was (binned in favour of CS5), laggy, some filters take longer (e.g. smart sharpen). Shake reduction filter not worth it for me (I don't work with Photographers who compromise). Will not purchase - paying a monthly subscription for a performance decrease? Come on.

Updated from 11.0.1 with the hope that tis would cure the horridly slow video re-encoding process - nope.
Converting a 1080p mp4 for dvd is now even SLOWER to the point of being measured in geological time. Gave up & downloaded Burn, which did the job in under 40 minutes.

No go on my niece's macbook pro 13" running 10.8.3 - it hangs our home wifi. Spent a whole day looking at numerous help & support sites, tried every suggestion - still hangs the modem. Same version works perfectly on 2 24" iMacs, one connected via wifi & running 10.6.8, one on ethernet port & running 10.8.3. Stumped - though I did read many reports from MBP owners grumbling about wifi issues during my search. Anyone else having this specific issue?

All good (so far) on my 2007 iMac, been using it for a few days now & seems to be running smoother than 10.8.2 - no crashes or kernel panics to date, Safari seems more stable and all the apps I use for work are behaving well - great! Was a little apprehensive after reading some of the comments, but all seems to be well here.

Been running CS6 for 4 weeks now - going back to 5 from my backups - slow, sluggish, cursors keep disappearing/exhibiting odd behaviours, & I find in some workflows I have to do more to achieve the same results - surely the point of new releases is to optimise workflow, not compound it with more steps. My one devout wish as a prepress & compositing operator is that someone - ANYONE - come up with an alternative to this bloated, aged & increasingly resource-hungry monster. In all honesty, CS4 was the most useable version for me - everything after that has been bloat. I don't buy software to troubleshoot it, & this version has been a pile of misery I'm sad to say.

After reading as many reviews & checking as many screen shots as I can, I think I'll be sticking to 10.7 for now - I like the UI better for desktop management, it seems more appropriate to me, plus I'm not too fond of the rash of itunes store prompts, as I purchase music from many different online vendors (& usually at a cheaper price!)

Half star only because macupdate wont let you post without ticking a box.

Since doing a clean install of ML plus updates on my 24" iMac (7.1), Safari has been nothing but a monumental P.O.S. Slow page loads, page stalls, frequent crashes always followed by the same error string (com.apple.JavaScriptCore). My previous setup (Snow Leopard, Safari 5) - stable, no problem.

Unuseable for me on a daily basis - reverting to SRWare Iron, which behaves itself on my current system.
