Apple still sorting out Mountain Lion launch
Apple is still encountering trouble with the Mountain Lion Up-to-Date program complaints indicate. The company has had to reissue codes to a number of people who applied for free upgrades to Mountain Lion. Now, though, some of the group getting new codes say they are getting codes for OS X Server instead. A copy of Server is useless without Mountain Lion already installed.
The mistake may be stemming from the fact that Server is technically an option in the Up-to-Date program, but only for people who have bought server editions of the Mac Pro or Mac mini. Customers have complained to Apple about the problem, and are already starting to receive correct codes.
