Apple released Mac OS X Lion, the eight major release of their desktop operating system with more than 250 new features on July 20th. Some of the main features in Lion are new Multitouch gestures, full screen apps, Mission Control, Launchpad, Resume, Auto Save, Versions and AirDrop. Mac OS X Lion 10.7 is available as a download from the Mac App Store for $29.99 and will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple Stores and other retailers later this August priced $69.

Reviews of the new Mac OS X Lion have been very positive with most reviewers calling it the best operating system, but with few bugs and a bit of learning curve. Walt Mossberg concluded his Lion review by saying “The past two major computer operating system releases, Windows 7 and Snow Leopard, were incremental. Lion is very different. It’s a big leap, and gives the Mac a much more modern look and feel for a world of tablets and smartphones. If you are willing to adjust, it’s the best computer operating system out there.”
