    Anyone here running the Lion Developer Preview able to guess whether it will be early July or late July?

    I heard there are still some placeholder graphics/videos in the latest version but aside from that is it close? Are there still lots of bugs?

    July.

    I don't think you understood the question!

    Wax on, wax off.

    No one knows. There will be bugs in the GM even when it's distributed, so there could be another beta, or not

    I'm crossing my fingers for a late June under-promise and over-deliver, but my head tells me you are probably right!

    The latest build broke gestures for Safari's back and forward features, so yes, there are still bugs. It's also good to keep in mind that it takes a week or two for Apple to per-install in it MBAs (you need thousands of them) and then ship them etc, assuming Lion comes pre-installed.

    Good. Crossing your fingers always helps. Do you uncross them when eating and driving? If so, that destroys their effectiveness in getting Lion out at the end of June, so please keep them crossed at all times.
