Top 10 Features of Mac OS X Lion, Available in July for Just $29
Mac OS X launched 10 years ago, and today Apple took its desktop OS to the next level with Mac OS X Lion, which borrows a lot of the mojo of iOS. Lion will be available only in the Mac App Store for just $29. The developer preview will be available today, but the consumer version will launch in July.
Here’s a quick look at the top 10 features, which we think will get a lot of Windows users to switch. Plus check out the gallery below for even more images from today’s Lion announcement.
1. New multitouch gestures
New multitouch gestures are built throughout the system. No more scroll bars (unless you want them) because you can two-finger scroll smoothly. You can also fluidly zoom, complete with a nice little bounce. When you're browsing you can swipe through your browsing history. Pretty nifty. You can use three fingers to swipe to the left to open recent apps.
