10 Reasons to Drop Windows for Mountain Lion

I guess you could say I started cheating on Windows back in October of 2010. That's when Apple debuted the revamped MacBook Air.

The Air was a work of art, but it didn't feel complete until OS X Lion arrived last year. With key time-saving features like Auto Save and Mission Control for faster multitasking, I started leaving behind my Windows notebook more and more.
