Today, Apple released Mac OS X Lion, the latest update to their desktop operating system software. The OS launched on the Mac App Store, and will later be available as a USB stick. The old MacBook is no more, and has been replaced by the¬†MacBook Air.
No More Boxes, No More Discs
Furthermore, Apple is doing away with the boxed versions of much of their software (via 9to5mac) such as: Mac OS X Snow Leopard,¬†Mac OS X Snow Leopard Server,¬†iLife,¬†iWork,¬†Aperture,¬†Apple Remote Desktop,¬†Xsan,¬†GarageBand Jam Packs,¬†Mac Box Set. However, Logic Express and Logic Studio will still be available. This change is effective July 20, 2011.
iWork has also been updated. The updates support new Lion features, such as full-screen mode and the autosave and resume that were shown off during Apple’s keynote. The resume feature seems very cool, as does autosave. It works much like Time Machine in that it only saves changes and allows you to go back to previous versions without taking up additional space.
