OS X Mountain Lion Crosses 3 Million Downloads In Just Four Days
By on July 30th, 2012

It has been around four days since Apple released the latest version of OS X, Mountain Lion, on the Mac App Store for $19.99. Today, Apple announced that OS X Mountain Lion has been downloaded more than three million times in just four days, making it unarguably the most popular and successful OS X release in the OS history.

“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,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.

Starting with OS X Lion, Apple started releasing OS X releases on the Mac App Store. While the Lion launch was plagued with users complaining about slow download speeds and server capping out, things have been significantly better with Mountain Lion. While users did report of slow download speeds, they were quite a minor percentage as compared to earlier. Also, the slow download issue only last for a couple of hours at maximum, unlike last time where some users had to wait for 2-3 days to download the OS at reasonable speed.
