OS X 10.8.2

It finally feels like a fully baked product. In my earlier review of the awkwardly named MacBook Pro with Retina Display (henceforth MBPr) I noted that while the product was impressive on many levels (display, thinness, battery life, speed), it failed to feel like a fully developed product. There were still some rough edges. Not even all of Apple’s own software fully supported the new HiDPI display, let alone 3rd party software.

It’s been a few months now, and with the release of OS X 10.8.2, the system really feels good. I haven’t had any kernel panics since updating, and the battery life is noticeably better. Most of the apps I use on a regular basis have been updated too.

There’s always a price to pay for being an early adopter, but if that’s who you are, what else can you do 🙂
