Apple's New OSX Lion... response to Microsoft's Windows 7?



Apple released the details of their operating system upgrade, OSX Lion.  The concept behind Lion is meshing Snow Leopard with an iPad.  This seems like a good idea, but I'll reserve my judgment for when I actually use it.  Luckily, Apple's operating system upgrades are only $50, so I'll pick it up when it comes out.

Besides the features of Lion, I'm thinking that Apple is trying to one-up Microsoft.  (Yes, I know that Linux rocks, but in the mainstream, it's really OSX vs. Windows.)  Windows 7 is just plain good... I love it.  When it was Vista vs OSX, OSX won hands down.  If you didn't like OSX, you either went to Linux or just stuck it out with XP. 

Once Lion is formally released, we'll be able to accurately compare it with Windows 7.

Taahahah... that windows phone ad was funny. Still bent myself on the ifer (iPhone). So, I'm interested in this Lion upgrade. Hopefully it is better with memory management than Snow. I just had to install iFreeMem to start clearing out things when Safari was hogging the world and the moon with it.

Ben said...

A OPONENT HAS APPEARD.

EGGDOOR said...

The Angry Vegetarian said...

There's still plenty of time until it's released. I know it will be a major improvement. I can't wait!

Willow said...

I never thought of their upgrades as upgrades and just updates to the current system....

DaniniPanini said...

Lion is a much cooler name!

Rezden said...

Windows 7 is good. I still enjoy using Ubuntu more, just feel safer.

richie said...

haha, true, i never switched to vista, it was such a load of elephant diarreah.

Suciô Sanchez said...

Will try to stick it on a Hackintosh.

Savage Nugget said...

I'm eager to see what Lion feels like. :D

miecak said...

Doesn't really affect me :P

firemn said...

I've never been a mac user. My girlfriend uses a mac and whenever I'm at her dorms I use her laptop to browse, but aside from that I never use them. I'm definitely one of those people too comfortable to move to another operating system. Linux is too manual for me, mac is only now starting to get games thanks to steam, and Windows has always been there while I was growing up.

NarwhalMinded said...

Looking forward to it.
Expecting great things from OSX Lion!

Random said...

Have to agree, I like win 7 as well so far what I'm hearing about Lion is mixed

Primarch Solyeuse said...

They just wanted to make the lion joke XD

Dan said...

I can't help but buy into their great marketing schemes. They could sell anything they wanted, and I bet Lion will sell really well.

PJMasterFunk said...

windows 7 is pretty decent hopefully mac can compare well

fedor519 said...

We shall wait and see. IMO, mac needs throw everything including the kitchen sink in order to touch windows 7. But if anyone can do it, apple can.

irdumb2 said...

waiting for full review of both of them and comparison

mapaiscool said...

i got an email from apple stating this. haha nice post.

Chi-chan said...

I'm pretty excited for this, I've only heard about it from friends though. I need to find time to sit through the keynote.

Nailgun said...

Look out, there's a lion back there!

happybuffet said...

Apple releases an OS X update every year. I don't think it's a direct response to Windows 7.

One said...

I finally got Windows 7 and it's such a breath of fresh air. I'm excited to see how Lion turns out.

Pandor42 said...

I'll stick to my Win7, but nice to know Apple is keeping on top of their game and not slacking it in the OS department.

Touch and Feel said...

We'll see about this....

Secret Guide to Shaving said...

Yeah its a sweet product. Can't be beat for only two bucks a bottle too.

MTL beer said...

Basically, apple is going to make us pay for a skinned version of linux again?

KTOTHES said...

I want to try out the apple air they released.

snoobyy said...

cool lion logo.

nubilus said...

yeah windows 7 was surprisingly good and i think i will stick with it

Erroneous Maximus said...

I guess we'll see, though I've never been a mac user.

nick said...
