[phenixbb] OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion

Yes. You only need to install XQuartz.app for Coot to run, but everything
else works right out of the box. Apple decided not to ship X11.app with Mac
OS X anymore.

If you happen to use one of the latest Macbooks, as it is my case, you
might experience weird graphical artifacts when using the discrete graphics
processor (GeForce 650M) with XQuartz. Just switch to the integrated
graphics until Nvidia fixes the issue.

Good luck,
