Apple So, Apple held its usual autumn press get-together just now, and after a few rather uninspiring ones (to me, at least), they finally managed to blow me away, with the new MacBook Air (especially the 11.6" variant). They also gave a sneak peek at Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, which has... An App Store. An App Store Apple is going to open on Snow Leopard within 90 days.

I may sound like an apple fag when I say this, but full-screen is actually better than maximize (no opinion about zoom) on a Mac. Mac's window management relies more on expose than something akin to taskbar i.e., the big-ass dock which eats up a chunk of space. Even so, you'll notice that newer browsers on Windows are looking more fullscreen'esque when you maximize them.

It's probably "intended" for applications which are productivity environments with lesser inter-application activity such as Aperture or Photoshop. But if it's gonna be forced onto me with other applications, I won't like it at all.
