Mac OS X Earlier this week, Apple released the first developer preview of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. At the same time, Apple listed a number of new features we hadn't yet heard about, which are quite interesting. There are two themes: bringing iOS to Mac OS X, and adding features other operating systems have had for ages - except in such a way that you can actually use them. Update: Fixed that scrolling thing. It's the other way around of course.

KILL ME NOW.

Or don't... if they provide an option to flip the axis.

In this case it isn't people are being backward by not liking it, it is what makes most sense IF you're not manipulating the objects on a screen directly like in tablets. After years of scrolling pretty much everybody is hardwired to use touchpads in a certain way. I completely fail to see the reasoning behind it.
