Apple As widely anticipated, Apple's new major OSX release is available this morning, download-only, for $29.99 USD in the Mac App Store. There's a quick copy and paste job of the feature list after the jump. Also as expected, there's a new, Sandy Bridge-based Macbook Air. Update: A reader pointed out John Siracusa's Lion review at Ars.

Sounds like you're a little attached to the Windows / Linux layout of things. I much prefer the menu bar at the top of the screen - only the relevant menu is displayed


I like it on my MBP 13". However the whole notion falls down when you have more than one screen or a really massive screen. Also if you want to access the menu of a window that is not in focus you first need to click on the window and then go to the menu bar.

Yeah, I get the multiple large screens thing I suppose, but I can't say I've ever needed a menu in an application which wasn't in focus. Perhaps it's an automatic thing for me though to reach for F9 or F10, or sometimes Command-Tab or Command-~ to have the application/window I'm looking for in focus.

I personally like the menubar-on-top thing, it's neat, and I sure can't remember a single instance where I would've had to access the menu of an application that I don't already have in focus. Hell, I don't even remember the last time I needed a menu at all ;)

Then again, that's more-or-less the only thing I like about OSX.. ;)
