Mac OS X Lion

Mac OS X Lion is the eighth upgrade of Mac OS X, the current operating system for Apple computers. It is available starting in Summer 2011.

Lion, described by Apple CEO Steve Jobs as “Mac OS X meets the iPad,” is based on Apple’s mobile operating system used on iPhones and iPads. The new operating system will include a Mac App Store where users can purchase apps for their personal computers. A new feature called Launchpad will allow users to arrange their apps and create app folders. All apps will have the option to be viewed full screen, as one would view them on a mobile device.

Lion also boasts an improved security system, easy set-up, autosave features and a more intuitive multi-touch interface.
