    Default Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Sneak Peek Next Week


    Apple has gotten very predictable in how it schedules its rollouts, with new iPhones being released during the summer, new iPods and Macs in separate Fall events. And like clockwork, Apple just announced it will hold a media event called "Back to the Mac" on October 20 to let us know "what's new for Mac," as well as "a sneak peek of the next major version of Mac OS X." Since the graphic for the event shows a lion peeking out from behind a tilted Apple logo, it's probably safe to assume that Mac OS X 10.7 will be known as Lion.

    Not much is known about what might be announced for 10.7, which has been appearing with increasing frequency in web server logs over the past year. Rumors that 10.7 would require apps to be signed with an Apple root certificate - effectively 'jailing' Mac OS X and creating a desktop App Store - were denied by Steve Jobs. There has also been some buzz about a revolutionary new feature, "something that has never been done before and will truly amaze everyone," referred to in a job listing Apple posted a few months ago. Though the details about the change in the "very foundations" of Mac OS X were left vague in the listing, the software engineer Apple was searching for needed experience with Internet technologies and services, and especially "up close and personal experience with the HTTP protocol as well as other protocols layered atop it."

    Of course, many observers will be looking to see if the long-rumored 11-inch MacBook Air shows any sign of actually being released. Fall is the traditional time for new Mac announcements, and the Air hasn't seen a refresh in over a year. The supposed "mini" Air, which is claimed to be manufactured by Quanta Computer and feature a 32nm Intel Core processor, has been talked about for months, and may well be announced next week… if it's not total vapor, that is.

    The event will be held a week from today on Apple's Cupertino campus at One Infinite Loop.

    If Apple decides to go that route with apps on a Mac, I will be the first in line to get a new PC and say goodbye to Apple.

    Or do like many PC users do, and don't upgrade the OS!

    I still prefer Windows XP over Vista or Win 7 any day.. Vista was nothing but a bloated piece of crap update.

    And people wonder why Apple is doing so well. At least with Apple, the OS's get better, and Stable.

    Snow Leopard was a great upgrade as it actually created FREE SPACE on the HD. Also 10.5.8 is still great. However, I am on Dell Windows XP after all these years.

    I'm using Windows 7 right now and I absolutely love it. If you're not using it then don't make any judgments. It's been very stable for me and I prefer the user interface of Windows 7 over a Mac any day. (yes, I have used plenty Mac computers. Also, I have an iphone which is why i read this forum)

    Big difference between MAC and Mac, you wouldn't be reading this online right now if your computer didn't have a MAC address.

    Uh. Thanks. Sorry about the slight mix up. I meant MACINTOSH. Definitely didn't mean to confuse anybody.

    Then you're living in the past. Windows 7 is much faster, has alot of awesome features, and is extremely stable (so was the free RC). You're contradicting yourself with the last line. Vista was crap because hardware manufacturers didn't do what they needed to for drivers, it had some problems of it's own, but 7 is a MASSIVE improvement. You need to upgrade to 7, XP is nowhere near as good all around and it's easy to buy an upgrade version and use it as a full install. Only reason to stay on XP is laziness or just doing it to say you did.

    Apple would never do that and everyone knows why.

    Now it would be cool to have an "appstore" for macs where you could easily find "apple approved" applications and have an easy payment method, but not be limited to choosing from them only.

    I bet its gonna be some BS like touch screen desktops which apple will say is "revolutionary" and "magical" lol. Too bad google was the one that bought bumptop the 3D desktop w/ widgets for pc and mac.

    Naw its probably gonna actually be huge because people actual think *cough* windows 7 is a decent *sh*tty* OS and there was so much advertising. I think this would be a good time for cloud iTunes as well as a cloud based Time machine! (I want that so bad)

    I'm guessing announce Mac OS X 10.7 next week, it's shown at WWDC '11, Again at WWDC '12 but with dev beta, and released a few months after that.

    Most looking forward to a refresh & 64-bit iLife. Just upgraded my MacBook Pro to 8GB RAM, and I would use iMovie if it wasn't broken and horribly converted crisp clear HD video into washed out blocky garbage worse than VHS.
