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.

Actually, what would be perfect is Apple took Solaris and just grafted the OSX UI on top.


I'd love to sit in while you try convincing Oracle to let Apple do that. ;) I can't disagree though, that'd be one hell of a system if Solaris and OS X merged. Low-level stuff is boring though. Why bother with such things when they can get everybody drooling over something shiny?

Yeh, I doubt that will happen in the near future. Especially with Solaris no-longer open source or no longer fully open source (don't really understand new status of Solaris).

I really would have liked to see Apple buy Sun. That would have been a great combination. Even with all the anti-Apple sentiment around here, I think its fair to say that Apple is a LOT better towards open-source community than Oracle.
