    Thanks. Has Auto Save been discussed for a while? From the sounds of it, sincerely hope that can be disabled.

    It also says developers can download the preview now but that still links through to the snow leopard download.

    Server's built right in? So a family pack would do me for my MacBook and my mini server? Excellent. I was expecting to pay around €700 for both.

    engadget says you have to get it from the app store...not sure if that's where you were looking

    Oh yea, i just read that on their press release. An OS downloads and updates through the app store? Hopefully a sign of simpler things to come. I was just wondering in another thread if it's worth becoming a member of the Mac OS developer program as i'd like to play around more with objective c development and it works out as only slightly more than what a mac os usually costs (~£60 here) and you get to try it early.

    How do most developers usually run a brand new os preview? In bootcamp, in parallels or on a dedicated mac?

    Looks like Lion is going to be awesome, and not be "turned into iOS" like so many people have been worrying about.

    Can we stop worrying now and go back to enjoying our Macs? :)

    Features do seem to be optimized for the small screen (witness that the preview page uses a MacBook Air). How does all this work out if you have a 27" iMac and/or a second monitor? If everything wants to run full screen on my iMac it sort of negates having all that screen area that can allow viewing multiple apps at once.

    And Mail 5 looks overly simplistic. Where is the pane showing multiple mail folders? A why would I want an email message that appears physically larger than a sheet of paper?
