Though Microsoft and Apple both get the plan to release their latest operating systems this year, their strategies vary. Microsoft tries a risky attempt by making Windows 8 quite different from Windows 7 both in operations and interface. Apple decides to stick to its existing Mac system and only make a few updates in Mountain Lion which is also known as Mac OS X 10.8. While Windows 8 is not released, it is hard to tell whether Microsoft has made a good decision. However, so far Mountain Lion has done quite a good job.

Compared to Snow Leopard, Mountain Lion has made tremendous improvement in the running speed, prolonged the duration time of the battery and enhanced application compatibility. Moreover, Mountain Lion can make full use of the powerful functions for iClound, which enables users to sync all settings along with apps. Therefore, Mountain Lion can provide users better entertaining experience.

"Can we play Flash on Mountain Lion?" Considering the rejection to Adobe Flash from The new iPad, this is a doubt held by most Mac OS X 10.8 users. Actually, there is corresponding version of Adobe Flash Player designed for the latest Mac system so that users can enjoy Flash on Mountain Lion freely. Moreover, since Quick Time Player can support the import of MOV video, another feasible way is to convert Flash to MOV on Mountain Lion with a powerful Mac SWF to Video converter.

Method I: Download Adobe Flash Player for Mountain Lion

Since Adobe Flash can be supported by Mountain Lion, what users get to do is find the right version for Mac OS X10.8 and then download and install it.
