    I think this is the record for shortest MR article ever. But I love it!

    I said it once before, but the smart thing to do would be to release it at midnight EST to let the fanatics get a jump on the downloads, which would help lighten the load tomorrow when everyone else is awake and trying to download it.

    I just don't know what Apple was thinking in releasing a 4 GB operating system as download-only. I know everything is moving to the "cloud", but damn, this could be a nightmare for a lot of people.

    Everyone will probably get it at 12 a.m. Pacific Time. That should reduce the bandwidth burden a bit.

    4GB file size x umpteen bazillion people bum-rushing the door like it was Black Friday. Could be interesting... Hopefully Brian Williams won't have anything to say about it at 630.

    Because this is not a rumor. Only rumor gets to be on the front page...

    A good entry for front page would be something like this: [source] Lion will be release on Wed at 7pm EST.

    QUESTION:

    i've got a quick question for anyone that know about the taxes and stuff in Ontario's Mac App Store policies. I've gotta buy itunes gift cards for credit in my Mac App Store seeing as I don't have access to a credit card and I was wondering if they charge taxes on Mac App Store purchases?


    :apple: LION!!! WOOOT :apple:

    What exactly is the problem with iWork 09 in Lion? The Apple web site specifically states that it supports the native full-screen feature.

    Really hope (should be) it's the same as the GM. Don't want to do another clean install again :p

    RAWRRRRRRRRR

    Awesome. Hopefully they fixed out some of those last minute bugs.
    I might wait a bit until I upgrade. Just want to make sure all my apps work and all major bugs are fixed. :)

    Heh, it's going to be hard for me to resist installing it right away. I'm planning on waiting until the weekend so I'll have at least some time to confirm that everything is working.

    Plus, I'm also going to do a clean install. I have junk sitting in corners on my machine from software I removed 2 years ago. One bad POS software even left a helper application running, that I can see is making calls in the console. And I've deleted that program months ago!

    I am just downloading an update to one of my applications and it says built and tested with OS X Lion. :D
    I hope I don't have to wait long after the launch for the request to be accepted for my free update to lion. I have only had my Mac two weeks, this is my first Mac and I love it.

    Date guessing game was getting tiresome. Thanks for ending it, Apple.

    I've seen plenty of "non-rumours" on the front page.

    Here is an example:

    http://www.macrumors.com/2011/07/19/apple-reports-record-breaking-q3-2011/

    And this very story has been moved to the front page as well ;)

    It's too late. I've already committed suicide.
