Default Mac OS X Lion confirmed

Time for new OS eventually, king of 'teh jungle.

http://www.apple.com/macosx/lion/

Making Mac look like iPad, imo it should be the other way around.

I don't think it looks worthy of the name "Lion". "Ocelot" maybe...

They're dumbing down the interface too much IMO. Sure it'll be great for people who know very little about computers, but for anyone experienced, it'll probably feel like MS bob.



WTF is this mess?

I bet it's still tons more usable than Windows though. Even Windows 7 is a massive PITA.

I thought they were going to combine osx and ios with this release. Well not literally but with app compatibility.

That's a just speculation, and I never see it actually happening. Computers tend to lack the hardware needed to make multitouch, accelerometer-based apps work. If you don't believe me, install Android on your desktop and try using anything but the most basic apps.

It's a feature called Exposť and it was released back in 2003. There's nothing messy to it.

I don't have any difficulties with W7 that stick out in my mind either.
