Mountain Lion Looking at First Update Soon

While OS X Mountain Lion has only been out for a matter of days, Apple is already working on the first update. MacRumorsis reporting that Apple is getting ready to seed builds of OS 10.8.1 to developers. This news is making the early adopters of Mountain Lion much happier, or at the very least filling them with hope.

Not that there seems to be huge problems with Mountain Lion. Mostly people are complaining about slow startup and shutdown times, and that it’s taking a little longer to sign in after putting in your password. Some people are also complaining of the desktop background image not staying constant, while others are looking for upgrades for Safari.

I, myself, have only had problems with the gestures and trackpad while using Safari. It just wouldn’t let me click on a link. I thought the kids broke the trackpad on my MacBook, and wasn’t very happy about that. It turned out to work just fine, though, on everything but Safari. It’s not a huge issue, but it definitely needs to be addressed.

For the most part, it seems that’s what any new builds of Mountain Lion need to address … not huge issues, just small things that are making Mac life much less convenient.

So far there is no expected date for 10.8.1.
