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.

skip recovery partition?

If I were to create a boot DVD (using the .dmg inside the installer) and install using that, could I choose not to have a recovery partition created? Space is a little tighter than it used to be: the SSD in there now is not as big as the two failed hard drives it replaced.

The partition will be created, but you can delete it and resize your other partitions to reclaim space afterwards.
