Review: Mac OS X Lion

We review the iOS-influenced Mac OS X Lion update

Some have argued that Apple faced its first major challenge on the desktop in some time when Windows 7 arrived; how do you improve your interface when Microsoft managed to tackle many gripes in one fell swoop and arguably had its best release ever? Apple's answer in Mac OS X Lion is to take a cue from an even simpler interface on the iPad. But is this the way of the future, or an instance of company synergy run amok? We'll see in our Mac OS X Lion review if Apple's made a smart bet and if Microsoft has to catch up once more.

    " May face a tough challenge from Windows 8, whenever it ships."

    It only took this to make me want to stop reading. I have even shown the windows 8 previews to long time windows users and they don't even want to upgrade to windows 8. I really doubt there will be a challenge for windows 8 other then trying to sell it.

    Is this a review or...

    Are there millions of people reading this that are waiting anxiously to know if they will use Lion or switch to Windows? Just review the OS and stop comparing it to Windows. If you want to compare you only have to use one sentence that will contain the phrase: Viruses, trojans, and malware.
    How about actually testing to see if it works with common applications? Does Adobe CS5.5 work OK? Will we have to wait for an upgrade to something else. Really, probably the most pitifully written thing I have seen in a long time. Basically, 15 minutes using the OS and I will know more than was presented here.
