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.

Depends whether your view of history is based on individuals or groups of people, I guess ;)

I've got several things against Jobs and his company on my side, but not enough to wish him to die. I rather see him as a good foe : sure, I couldn't agree with most of his design decisions, but life of the tech world will be incredibly dull without him locking down the wheel and putting a shiny coat of paint on it every year or so.

It'd be like a world where reference manuals would be 100 pages long and perfectly clear : what would be the achievement of managing to read them anymore ?

I care more about freedom and utility than 'shiny'.

"Shiny" would be a good name for the brand of brain-soap he sells.

I didn't say that, for the record.

I was going to comment about if 'shiny' was worth the damage done, comparing him to a vampire who consumes human flesh. I held back, but people seem to like to inferring things...
