Am I going to have a problem with Mountain Lion?

I am currently on Lion (10.7.4) of OS X and using PHPStorm 4.0.3.  It seems ok.

If I update to Mountain Lion 10.8.x, am I going to have issues with PHPStorm?

How about the other Jetbrains IDEs should I choose to use any of them?

Please advise if I am going to have issues that prudently require me to wait.

We use our products with Mountain Lion 10.8 back here at jetbrains with no problems.
OS will prompt you for installing JDK on first run of any java app - be sure to let if do that and finish.

The only issue I had with ML wasn't PHPStorm. The webserver/php/etc.. is turned off my default. And no longer located in Preferences. You have to use apachectl to get things rolling (inside terminal). I also had serious issues getting PHP to run the way I wanted. I gave up and got MAMP PRO (a stack). Easier.

I tell ya, Apple is dumbing down the OS with every update.

Right.  Lion still has the Web Sharing in preferences and Mountain Lion does not.

It can get very tricky even with Lion as the apache.conf has a directive to look for the webserver.  If it is enabeled, by default, the URL:http://localhost  will look inside the path: /Library/WebServer/Documents  If you use http://localhost /~<username> it will look inside the "Sites" folder under the user.

I created a directive that points both URLs to the Sites folder, but that's just so I don't have to include the /~<username> in the URL.

If you have Mountain Lion, I found this URL to be very informitive:

Maybe it will help someone else.

Meanwhile, I am holding off on the Mountain Lion upgrade because I run off a laptop mostly.  There are some possible issues with batterylife so when they resolve that, I would be more open to using Mountain Lion.

Don't want to get too far off topic so we'll leave it at that :)

Thanks for your comments.
