What is Mountain Lion OS?

Mac Mountain Lion OS is one of the 9th major releases of Mac OS X versions. It was developed by Apple Inc. and released on July 25, 2012. Unlike other prior versions where users were required to purchase a CD drive for installing the OS on a PC, the Mountain Lion OS was available for direct download on Apples Website (Mac App Store). This was an improvement that was highly regarded by most Mac users, and over the years other OS released by Apple have followed the same lineup and setup.
