    Then a fresh install of ML might be the way to go? Did you back up the installer DMG?

    I think the trouble started with the upgrade. Hmm...

    Oh, I forgot it was USB. Mine's in an external enclosure, as well, because there's a HDD sitting in my optical bay, with a SSD in the main drive bay.

    I guess the Mountain Lion Recovery Partition was wiped out, hence not downloading it. I'd stick to ML, personally (it's basically a fixed Lion), but you may want to see if the problems are ML related.

    At least the SuperDrive is considered a generic drive.

    For some reason I decided to reboot after wiping all partitions. The laptop immediately downloaded the original Lion version of the recovery utilities and offered me to reinstall Lion, not Mountain Lion. Maybe a downgrade is in order?

    You should be able to force the superdrive to eject by holding down the mouse click as you power on. At least you used to - I haven't tried it in years.

    If you've wiped it, try a fresh install with the updates and see if that sorts it. Up to you, of course - Windows 8 is a good OS too.

    Software side, perhaps? I wiped the entire thing again. I had to eject the SuperDrive using another Windows laptop.

    I honestly think there's something wrong with your computer. With the exception of Flash (lol), both Chrome and Safari (not that I really use it, although it's ridiculously fast) are rock-solid.

    Stability.

    Besides, DirectWrite is giving OSX a run for its money these days. It strikes a nice balance between OSX native and GDI.

    Gah, I hate it when processes mysteriously stop or not respond. *relaunches Finder*

    Huh? What's the difference, apart from the smoother scrolling and nicer fonts in OSX?

    Gotta hate browsing the web on that thing. >.<

    Stable? It's perfectly stable for me - lol, what you doing?

    I think I've had enough with OS X.

    *proceeds to wipe it*

    I tried to love it, and while it's easy to use... I'd rather have a stable OS. Oh well, might as well as claim 44 GB of extra space.
