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.

Is it in the Mac genes to let users configure things? I remember that when I used to use a Mac at work, I vowed to never buy a Mac as long as one can't change the **size** of the system font. That's a deal breaker for me. I had to use Onyx to show hidden files, which, everywhere else is readily possible. The resistance against a "Cut" command in the Finder is another thing I don't get.

I think that you'll be happy to hear that you can now resize windows by dragging any of their edges. Some things do change - very slowly.

Yes indeed. I don't have that MacBookPro any longer but yes, it's good news.
