There you go, folks. Apple has given all of us a sneak peak into what the future brings with the Macintosh Operating System, and that future goes by the name Mac OS X Lion. Based on what Steve Jobs mentioned, it looks like it’s going to be another exciting OS for Mac users.
Slated for a release next summer, Mac OS X Lion is bringing many features inspired by the iPad to the Mac. Major new features are:
- Mac App Store – A new way to discover, install and automatically update desktop apps
- Launchpad – A new home for all your Mac apps
- System-wide support for full screen aps
- Mission control, unifying Expose, Dashboard, Spaces and full screen apps
“Lion brings many of the best ideas from iPad back to the Mac, plus some fresh new ones like Mission Control, that Mac users will really like,” said Steve Jobs.
So, are you ready to part ways with the Snow Leopard and embrace the Lion?
