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.

You've got a point. Thought about it after writing this comment : OS updates tend to often spread into lots of small files, so they keep a much worse effect than periodically rewriting a small file.

If your numbers about the block size are realistic, this "auto-save" feature needs some tuning before HD movie editing kills an SSD in a year, though.

Oh, well, guess I need a bit of sleep, which I'm going to take now.
