Mac OS X Lion Introduced

Apple Introduced the new version of their OS, Mac OS 10.7 also called Mac OS X Lion. Apple said that they have taken many innovative features of the iPad and iPhone and introduced it into the Mac. This new OS looks clean and neat. It is absolutely stylish with its elegant new look.

It comes with many new features. Like the app store for iPhone and iPad there is going to be another App store called the Mac App Store exclusively for Macs.

Another new feature is the Launchpad, inspired from the iPad. The Launchpad gives you instant access to your apps — iPad style. Just click the Launchpad icon in your Dock. Your open windows fade away, replaced by an elegant, full-screen display of all the apps on your Mac. It takes just a swipe to see multiple pages of apps, and you can arrange apps any way you like by dragging an app icon to a new location or by grouping apps in folders.


This version of OS X comes  with full screen apps.  On iPad, every app is displayed full screen, with no distractions, and there’s one easy way to get back to all your other apps. Mac OS X Lion does the same for your desktop. You can bring an app to full screen with one click, switch to another full-screen app with a swipe of the trackpad, and swipe back to the desktop to access your multi-window apps. And systemwide support for full-screen apps makes them bigger and more immersive. So you can concentrate on every detail of your work, or play on a grander scale than ever before.

The Best feature of all is, The Mission Control. Mission Control is a powerful and handy new feature that provides you with a comprehensive view of what’s running on your Mac. It gives you a bird’s-eye view of everything — including Exposé, Spaces, Dashboard, and full-screen apps— all in one place. With a simple swipe gesture, your desktop zooms out to Mission Control. There you can see your open windows grouped by app, thumbnails of your full-screen apps, Dashboard, and even other Spaces, arranged in a unified view. And you can get to anything you see on Mission Control with just one click. Making you the master of all you survey.

Update: Mac OS X Lion arrives in summer 2011.
