Damn now more than ever were gonna need a mac cydia to fix all the performance and battery draining crap apple likes to add.
I can swear I read something somewhere about something in windows 7 multitasking that was related to fast app switching but I cant remember.
Looks like Im gonna make good use of activity monitor and I will probably buy iStat 3 (been using the old free version for a while).

Mac OS X already reserves the majority of free RAM and delegates it out to apps itself. That's why when you go into Activity Monitor, free RAM also seems to be very low.
I think this could be a revolution in computing. Imagine, instead of just minimizing, being able to close a document or a movie or a presentation, and being able to open it and go right back to where you were. For the productivity and media focus and ease of use that Macs have always been known for, I'd say its a great step to take.

If this does happen, then I guarantee that apple will find a way to make this work. If it doesn't work well, then they WON'T USE IT. It would jeopardize the Mac OS and they are smart enough to realize that. This is just speculation. How many times have people came out and said that an idea that Apple has is not going to work....and then it works. Who knows if this is even true, and if it is, then I'm sure they'll find a way to minimize CPU usage and/or battery life.
Calm down people. Relax, have some fun.
Y'all are Windows 7 lovers.

Need multiFl0w for mac to close and manage apps. Cant find that on the internet. The real reason though is at I want much easier acces to mac themes because finding themepark themes for SnowLeopard or getting widgets on the desktop... Very difficult to do and hard to find.
Activity monitor simply wont cut it any more after Lion. Even with iStat

defaults write com.apple.dashboard devmode YES
Replace the YES with NO to reverse.
Lol, why would you find multifl0w now when there's no need for it quite yet? If Apple does use this whole "backgrounding" concept with 10.7 then I'm sure that within minutes developers will have their own tweaks and you don't need cydia for that. I don't see a need for OS X themes, I like the interface as it is. No one even knows that apple will do any of this. sheesh

I'm still unsure about Lion, but I have some time to warm up to it. It should be interesting to see what they come out with.
Oh and by the way... This is how an article should be written. Well said and put together and researched! Take note messany.

How has no one figured this out yet? Everyone keeps posting "TOO MUCH RAMZZ" "OHH NOZ MY CPUZ"
It wont hog CPU or ram. When you close the app it quits. But it save the state that you were working on. So when you relaunch the app it opens right were you left off. I'm sure it will save some cache in your memory so relaunch won't take forever but for the most part the app will be gone from your memory. Think of it like IOS multitasking.
This will actually SAVE ram and CPU.
You have no ideas how many times I don't close applications just because i like to keep my current state without having to save.
Ik this will revolutionize the way I work.

How will All the full screen games work? There's no way SCII will just "background"

It will eat up too much memory. Minimizing a window will have the same effect

This would be awesome, but I agree with some as far a CPU and memory issue that could be presentYou don't like the iPad because you don't have one!
