    Lion(OS X 10.7) is not for existing Macs, but for a (new) tablet device.

    If you are a user of Macintosh, remain in Mac OS X. OS X is not for Macintosh.

    Think about dropping 'Mac' from the original 'Mac OS X 10.7 Lion'.

    I think it's pretty clear that Apple considers the iPad to be the tablet mac.

    For a new tablet device? I guess that's why they made the entire interface less touch intuitive (for example the size of the window traffic lights) and been focusing a lot on multitouch on trackpads rather than the screen itself. :rolleyes:

    they didn't drop the Mac, except for in some marketing materials where it would have been redundant to say Mac OS X Lion over and over. Don't believe me check out what about this Mac says on a lion instalation, here's a picture borrowed from another thread. [​IMG]

    Also we will never see a tablet from Apple running a desktop operating system, Microsoft tried and failed. iOS is for mobile devices like tablets and OS X is for desktops and laptops.
