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.

To ease the transition to iOS on all platforms, whether you like it or not.

They're the most evil company in tech, because they're actually attacking the most important think involved: the minds of 'users' and programmers.

You shouldn't be mocking people who could be dead in a few weeks.

Uhhh that made no sense. A person's state of health have no bearing on the kind of person he is. He is an evil person, it doesn't matter that he will keel over in days/weeks.

In general - tone it down dude. You've been a bit on an... Unpleasant commenting streak as of late. Please tone it down, kthnxbi.

The industry has been on a depressing streak, too.

To para-quote Henry Rollins "...and no one seems to be going after them in the intense, aggro, no-holds barred fashion I think is necessary! So I've taken it upon myself! ...There is a line in the sand. You're the vampire, I'm the vampire killer! Let's get it on!"

Most likely. A lot of us have been predicting a convergence of iOS/OS X since the iPad was released.

They're the most evil company in tech, because they're actually attacking the most important think involved: the minds of 'users' and programmers.


That's a bit extreme, and I can definitely think of a couple of other companies that better qualify for "most evil in tech". Apple isn't trying to single-handedly destroy GNU/Linux as one certain company tried a few years ago, for example.

Besides, they aren't attacking anything. Ask a Windows 7 or GNU/Linux or BSD user if they feel like their mind is being attacked by Apple, and most will probably call the guys in white coats to strap you down and take you away.

In other words, if you don't like what Apple is doing with Lion and future releases, please move on to another platform. There are quite a few that will run on your existing Apple hardware just fine, from Windows 7 to Linux and beyond if you don't mind a little legwork. Or, you could sell your Apple computers, buy some generic but more than adequate replacements, and probably have some cash left over.

THAT was a perfect example of possible evil, on your part. I say "possible" because you didn't specify the horrible and disgusting comment, but given his current state I can wager a guess. Not cool, dude.
