Mountain Lion is not much better, from our perspective, because Mountain Lion and earlier use libstdc++, which doesn't support C++11, which many ports are requiring. Mavericks and later use libc++ which supports C++11. If your Mac can upgrade to Mountain Lion, it can upgrade to at least El Capitan, possibly even High Sierra. I'd recommend you upgrade to the newest version you can.
