    Mountain Lion Upgrade
    I have OSX 10.5.8, what do I have to do to upgrade to ML? Looks like I need to install Snow Leopard only first?

    Thanks,

    Don

    To be honest...this has been asked & answered about 50,000 times (as well as a "bazillion" articles written about it on the internet)...but here goes anyway:

    - First...you need to be sure your computer meets the minimum hardware requirements to run Mountain Lion (do an internet search).

    - Second...if your computer meets the specs...yes you are correct...you need to install Snow Leopard. You are very lucky in this repect...since Apple stopped selling Snow Leopard for a while...but now it's available again at the Apple Online Store.

    - Third...depending on what version of Snow Leopard the install disk you purchase is...make sure SL is updated to at least 10.6.6...so you have access to the MAS (Mac App Store).

    - Fourth...launch the Mac App Store...purchase & download Mountain Lion...and install.

    HTH,
