Mountain Lion Is Apple's Most Successful Operating System, Topping 3 Million Downloads

In just four short days, 3 million Apple users around the world have shelled out their $US20.99 to get a copy of Mountain Lion. That makes Mountain Lion the most successful OS release in Apple’s history. Thanks to the record, Apple is promising goodies.

So far, Mountain Lion has been downloaded 3 million times around the world, and Apple’s president of marketing, Phil Schiller, is rapt.

“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,” he said.

Many were disappointed however about the lack of Facebook integration with Mountain Lion, especially in the nifty Notification Center bar. Apple’s now pledging in its public statements that Facebook integration will arrive soon as a software update.

Hurrah!
