So what under the hood refinements can we expect in Lion?
Good question, given that Snow Leopard was mostly under the hood changes. I'd go out on a limb and say any under the hood changes to Lion will be minimal. I'm sure some new APIs are there, but I'm not so sure about quicker book, or responsive.
Yes to all.
It boots extremely quickly with an SSD.
I think the back-end changes are no-brainers. As far as API's go, yes - I expect there to be a lot with full screen apps and Mission Control. I also expect Apple to provide developers with new API's for things like LaunchPad and tighter system integration.
Any updates on when we are on the verge of a release?
how about with a HDD?
slower than SSD.
14th July is the rumoured date.
Those are probably what the Mac only users want.
From the side of a PC network administrator or computer security techie, I would hope Lion could talk well on a PC network, or at least as well as OS X Tiger did a few years ago. Apple has paid so much attention to iPhone, iPod, iTunes, and iPad in recent years, that "networking" a Mac to a PC network has fallen off Apple's to do list.
I don't see Apple ever entering the larger LAN and WAN operating systems market anytime soon, so it's important for those in business that if there is a Mac workstation, that Lion could work as seamlessly as Windows 7 workstations on a Windows server network.
This may seem a small point for many who are home users, but Apple has really put all their energy into their great devices and have paid a lot less attention to OS X. After Lion, which I hope is the last "cat" in Apple's line, it may perhaps be a good time to move on to an OS 11 with a completely redesigned interface.
On the contrary. Lion adds a shitbunch of new APIs, as has every release before it. It's just that Snow Leopard focussed more on that than user-visible changes.
