OS X Mountain Lion application incompatibilities reported

07/26, 8:42pm

Xgrid removed; AutoCad, Perian, DAVE non-functional in Mountain Lion

With any new OS revision, the community's general tendency is often "upgrade first, ask questions about compatibility later." The excitement of obtaining the latest OS and its new features sometimes interferes with normal "best practices." While Microsoft has recently announced both Office 2008 and 2011 are compatible with Mountain Lion with patches, a handful of high-profile applications are not yet compatible with Cupertino's latest OS, which may lead to headaches with productivity, or just everyday computing tasks for hasty upgraders.
