Now available to the EECS/IRIS community: OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)!
IRIS has purchased a pool of licenses for OS X Mountain Lion, to make it
easier and more cost-effective for those in the EECS/IRIS community to upgrade.
Licenses purchased in volume cost us $9.99 per seat, versus the retail price
of $19.99 per seat. At this time we are assuming the cost, and not charging
people for individual licenses.
If you are going to use the Installer on
multiple machines, please let us know how many, so we can better track our
license purchases. Similarly, if your Mac already came with Mountain Lion or
was eligible for a free upgrade (Summer 2012 or newer), then let us know — we
can loan the installer to you without needing to pay Apple for an extra license.
You may borrow Mountain Lion installation media at the Helpdesk
(395 Cory Hall) — we can loan you a DVD, or help transfer the installer via USB
to your laptop or USB key (8 Gb or larger). We cannot provide direct downloads
of the Mountain Lion installer at this time.
To check whether an older system is capable of running OS X Mountain Lion,
please consult Apple’s System
requirements for OS X Mountain Lion.
Snow Leopard (10.6) and Lion (10.7) systems should apply standard Mac updates
before running the Mountain Lion installer. Earlier systems (e.g. Leopard, 10.5)
may find the following article useful:
