New features of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
Authored by: captainulf on May 18, '11 05:33:51AM

I think the focus on animated UI features is a bit misdirected. I mean come on, most of the features in this poll are "accomplishable" on Snow Leopard today with the right set of third party software:

The Mac App Store = It's already here so what's to look forward to.
Mission Control = Exposť evolved. It does look nice but I still envy those blow your mind Linux window managers that do full 3d and are generally able to go way over the top
Full screen applications = I agree with other commenters. Seriously?
Enhanced multitouch = Nice but surely it's "just" an input driver
Launchpad = Please add to this list: Overflow, LaunchBar, Quicksilver, Butler...

It sounds like I'm slagging off Lion. That's not my intent at all. Hopefully it'll be as nice an evolution on Snow Leopard as Snow Leopard was on Leopard. In a few months time we probably won't be looking back.

But the under the hood changes that provide better stability, better data consistency, wider compatibility, etc. are much more exciting to my mind.
