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.

Well, I'm sorry to say, bo these aro no real innovative features ... just the cosmetic ones.
No real technology which makes the WORK easier, only some minor fixes and doubtful "enhancements" like fullscreen apps [wow, now that's so up-to-date! I've never heard of 'em].
Mission control can be easily created with normal icons ... darn it, everything on the list is obvious and pretty common in every developed OS.
I suppose only hardcore fans and people who have never knew sich features would be happy about them.

And those who don't look for features in Apple's PR material.

Do tell me of another OS that has integrated document versioning...

It also has to be noted that Windows upgrades cost a lot more for the features they provide...
