I really think Apple is outdoing windows... But I'm just a windows person...
Maybe in a few years when I need a new computer (and I have money) I will buy a MAC myself :)

Enjoy your chocolate milk :)

anonymous said...

Nice pictures!

Is that dock custom or are the icons really going to be square like that?

Banquo said...

Linux...? just kidding... ;)

mac-and-me said...

@¡ɥsoſ
the dock is customized, with the flurry icon theme i posted a few days ago

Evan said...

When did apple announce this?? This looks unreal. Im really looking forward to a more indepth look

Aaron M. Gipson said...

I keep hearing all of these great things about the Mac OS, and I have to admit that the GUI is very attractive. But for me, I like the gameplaying power of Windows...

Nik Mekeena said...

looks nice

amBored said...

Jung said...

Apple is nice, but nazis about everything

GetSomeSwag said...

Questions said...

Nice looking OS.

HurdyG said...

Looks awesome!

Chuck said...

I grew up playing a mac originally. I will always agree that their interfaces are always well laid out and easy to use/navigate.

Denzel said...

looks nice

Jack Mussolini said...

too complicated thats why i use windows

A said...

It looks like an iOS. wtf haha

mac-and-me said...

@Jack Mussolini
the general believe is that os x is more user-friendly and "easier" to handle then windows
i share that viewpoint as well i found some things in windows very complicated and also missed the power of unix when i needed it

Lhosreiff said...

Apple loves them chrome buttons.

-DO- said...

looks great!

Shutterbug said...

I like what I am seeing so far... :)

Steven said...

Can't wait

Useful Randomness said...

looks pretty good, but i'd rather have something look shitty and work amazing than look amazing and work shitty.
we'll see how it holds up

Rachel Neilson said...

Hmm, maybe I should buy a mac???

Sam A Lot said...

Nice pics dude

G said...

everything they do just looks awesome!

Charles said...

that would be cool, I just love to not see the pinwheel of death. sticking with XP until it no longer works with current software.

schultzz said...

hi im a windows/linux user and cant find much use for a mac but i dont hate them, whats the diference in this and OSX snow leopard ( is the one im most familiar cause of school and work).

Diorf said...

Looks really nice!

Chris said...

Very cool stuff

FrenchNeo said...

I have to admit Mac have some good point.
But I'm still a windowfag.

C.M. said...

Wow this looks awesome. Wish Windows would get their crap together.

thenitefalls said...

Mac is stepping their game up with this nice OS :)

Anonymouse said...

looks alright but i have trouble getting over my prejudice towards macs.

Something Concupiscible said...

Looks good so far, but looks are not everything.

Copyboy said...

King of the tiger that's for sure!

liam said...

i can't wait till this comes out!!

skinned sheep said...

looks sleek like the 80's :P

following!

Devon Davidson said...

Sounds good. Though I still prefer PC.

Trelin said...

Very interested in what's new with lion, but I'm a poor windows user with a fairly new cheap compaq laptop. I won't be able to justify a base model macbook pro for at least 2 or 3 years. Maybe the base macbook pro will have decent graphics by then.

thatguy said...

Lion? I can't wait for Mac Tiger Blood. It's Charlie Sheen approved. lol

You Want, You Lose said...

Lol at thatguy. OSX Tiger Blood. What happens when Apple decides to move onto OS11. What are they going to call it OSXI? Not as catchy.

Salman A said...

It looks very good, there is no doubting that. Let's see how it performs. Thanks for sharing!

Forrest Stump said...

I tried to develop something for Mac and iPhone time ago but it was a little difficult and I left it

Dootzkie said...

Judging by the looks, it's amazing. I'd like to see hear on how it performs so that I would be convinced to give up all of my games for good :D

las3R said...

Yeah it does look great, aha and I agree on reviewing how well it performs d;

The Game Store Guy said...

Very cool. Looking forward to the continued post.

Glovey said...

I cannot wait for this! eek!

baxxman said...

Wow, very nice. Still waiting... :-)

Justin testing said...

Oh man I can't wait for this :O too bad my mac is a bit outdated T_T (macbook non-pro but aluminum)

Merlyy said...

Looking forward to your updates!

Frosty said...

I had no idea apple had a new os, somewhat interested

clique said...

this looks cool.

Patti D. said...

nice, looking forward!

TreeBranchez said...

If only the hardware wasn't so overpriced... I have a partition on my PC with MAC OS Leopard on it just to mess around with, but it doesn't really do anything special that my Windows PC can't do.

Yenaaa said...

Yeah that does look really pretty! I love apple's icon designs.

Justin said...

Switchin' universities soon, and I need something with a webcam. Since I have a kick ass desktop already I might end up getting a macbook, my first foray into apple products. So reading up on this stuff is pretty exciting.

Crose said...

App store is a great feature

Adventure Person said...

I like the improvements in Lion, the App Store is handy!
