Mac OS X Lion

Mac OS X Lion is touted as having over 250 new features compared with its predecessor, Snow Leopard.

Of course, most of those will be mere refinements, but there are several big ticket items:

  • Mission Control
    • Brings Dashboard, Exposé, and Spaces together in one new feature
  • Multi-touch gestures
    • View ‘Mission Control’, zoom in and scroll
  • Full screen apps
    • Apps such as iPhoto and Mail look very similar to native iPad applications
  • Launchpad
    • Displays apps in a similar grid to iPhone/iPad layout
  • Resume
    • Allows apps to resume in the same state in which they were closed

Lion will be available through the Mac App Store as a download.
