Mac OS X "Apple has seeded the golden master version of OS X Lion to developers ahead of its public release sometime this month (July). The golden master download is available from Apple's Mac Developer website. The build number is 11A511. In addition, Apple has seeded Developer Preview 7 of Xcode 4.1." You'll now also be allowed to virtualise several instances of Mac OS X inside Mac OS X.

Tap-to-click and I don't get along.

Something with the way I use trackpads triggers accidental taps. So maybe there are more people like me for whom it creates a usability problem, versus those who need to be able to tap (who can enable it).


I never really noticed that it was disabled by default... perhaps that's why I don't have rage at the first mis-click when I use a fresh install of OS X, unlike most other OSes. If I was a less savvy user, I'd find it pretty darn frustrating if I couldn't figure out how to turn it off.

agree with you... it is quite annoying in windows boxes accidentally "clicking" something when you are just gerting your fingers out the pad.

Agreed too. My old man sweared and cursed at this new Dell laptop because of that (along with the crappy small touchpad). This probably explains why so many people I know prefer the lenovo nipple thingy over using a touchpad.
