Apple Launches Developer Preview of Mac OS X Lion [apple.com]
Apple today released a developer preview of Mac OS X Lion, which takes some of the best ideas from iPad and brings them back to the Mac for the eighth major release of the world's most advanced operating system. Lion features Mission Control, an innovative new view of everything running on your Mac; Launchpad, a new home for all your Mac apps; full screen apps that use the entire Mac display; and new Multi-Touch gestures. Lion also includes the Mac App Store, the best place to discover, install and automatically update Mac apps. The Lion preview is available to Mac Developer Program members through the Mac App Store today, and the final version of Lion will ship to customers this summer.

"The iPad has inspired a new generation of innovative features in Lion," said Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. "Developers are going to love Mission Control and Launchpad, and can now start adding great new Lion features like full screen, gestures, Versions and Auto Save to their own apps."

I read the release. I'd say it looks like mostly flash, but that might confuse folks. So, instead I'll say Lion appears to be mostly glitter.

One issue I see coming is that they are running out of big cats to name the OS X releases.

I promise you that I will not be first to try it. Been there, done that. Never again.

Yeah, I usually wait 4-6 weeks after a new release. Let everyone else report the bugs... I need my Macs to work.
