Thanks to its easy download and low price, Apples Mountain Lion appears on pace to be one of the most quickly adopted operating systems in history.
After just its first 48 hours on the market, Apples new Mountain Lion already accounts for more than 3 percent of Mac Web traffic, according to numbers provided to AllThingsD by Web tracking firm Chitika.
"Moreover, based on Apple's June 2012 announcement that there are currently 66 million Mac users in the wild, we can infer that 2.11 million Mac users downloaded OS X Mountain Lion in the past 48 hours," Chitika said. "Using this figure, if we assume that 90 percent of these users paid to upgrade, OS X Mountain Lion generated $38 million in revenue for Apple in the past 48 hours."..
