When Apple says “The world’s most advanced desktop operating system advances even further”, you will totally agree like I do the moment you’ll lay your hands on Mac OS X 10.7. Codenamed “Lion“, it not only takes the OS to a whole new level but it really “roars like a lion” with blazing fast load times, much snappier performance and over 250 new features. There is absolutely no way you can describe how awesome the OS feels unless you actually see it in action.
To start with, there is Launch Pad that gives you instant access to all your apps in an iOS-like interface with a simple click of a Dock icon. All your open windows swiftly fade away, replaced by a display of all your apps. Then there’s systemwide support for gorgeous, Full-screen apps that use “every inch of your Mac display”. Mission Control is a ground breaking feature of OS X Lion that unites Dashboard, Exposé, Spaces and Full-screen apps to give you “a bird’s-eye view” of everything currently running on your system. To make things even easier, you can swipe through all these with some amazing Multi-Touch Gestures such as iOS like system-wide pinch and zoom, scrolling and full-screen swiping.
The Mail app has been re-designed from the ground up giving you an experience closest to what you get on your iPad Mail application. Then comes AirDrop, the fastest way to share files with people nearby over Wi-Fi directly without requiring a common Wi-Fi network. The list just goes on and on. If you want, you can go through all the 250+ new features added in OS X Lion by visiting the official website here. Or better yet, download the $29.99 upgrade directly from the Mac App Store and savor the breath taking OS X Lion experience.
