During its third quarter earnings call, Apple reported solid sales of iPhones and iPads, and announced it would release OS X 10.8 (also known as Mountain Lion) on Wednesday. The update brings Facebook integration and several iOS features to the Mac, and will cost $19.99.

The release date was previously only known to be sometime in July. iOS is still coming out “this Fall,” according to CEO Tim Cook, who also said Apple has some new products “in the pipeline.”

Will you be making the upgrade? Why or why not?
