Mac OS X 10.7: iOS from the Lion's Mouth

Ainsley Jones

The big news from Apple's "Back to the Mac" event yesterday was Mac OS X 10.7, aka Lion. Slated for release next summer, Apple's next desktop operating system borrows heavily from mobile platform, iOS.


According to bigmouthmedia, Lion will support multitouch technology and provide users with access to a Mac App Store. In addition, Mac OS X 10.7 will facilitate apps that operate in full-screen mode rather than windows and apps that auto-save work and auto-resume when relaunched. A feature called LaunchPad, which is similar in nature to an iPad's homescreen, will be available as well as Mission Control, which combines the elements of Dashboard, Expose andSpaces, says Computerworld.
