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.

I agree 100% with your comment on the hfs+ file system. It's the weakest point in macosx. I've suffered two data corruption situations in which the file system become corrupted and the data was lost. Nothing wrong with the hardware it was the file system which had given up the ghost. This is where I find one of Windows strong points, NTFS is incredibly resilient and I've yet to see a whole disk go bad through the fault of NTFS, even with bad sectiors NTFS performs well. I really hope that as you have commented apple either purchases/licence a new Filesystem, as hfs+ just cannot keep up and it's not something I like worrying about when storing large amounts of data on a hfs+ drive.
