    I've seen a new thread every day. Sometimes twice a day with the title "Lion will be released tomorrow at x:xx PM - no proof but this guaranteed!"

    Or

    "Look at this nifty photoshop manip I made, LION IS SHOWING IN MY APP STORE. BELIEVE ME."

    So I thought we could all pile into one thread and discuss when Lion will be released, rather than creating a new one every day. Lets call this the official "Lion will be released whenever its released" thread.

    Heres the latest Lion-centric release date news post:

    Lion to release tomorrow, not today.

    There is a 5.8% chance that Lion will be released tomorrow.
    Alternatively, theres a 94.2% chance it won't be.

    All i hope is that OSX Lion will be available for download very soon. I don't believe these rumors any more.

    There's going to be a new article every single day saying it's going to be released the following day. We just know it's going to release this month. We may as well just stop freaking out and save the suspense. Just forget about it, and then it'll come faster.

    So many people said that it would be released today, but nothing has happened yet.
    I don't really believe the rumors anymore, I just hope to see the release very soon.

    Exactly. I got excited about it the first time I saw a "Guaranteed to release tomorrow!"

    And then it didn't release. Now its just getting old. I'm planning on sitting back and waiting.

    Al these rumors are based on nothing. Even the rumor about the 'overnights'. We don't hear anything about that now ...

    So bored of waiting for this now. If it isn't out tomorrow i'll probably just download the GM then when the MAS download appears to all consumers I'll pay for it and do a clean install :)

    I'm so thinking the same. All these rumors have really put a damper on getting excited for 10.7

    I downloaded and installed the GM today on my HD. I have an SSD waiting for the general release and I'll do a clean install when I have a spare few hours.

    I'd expect a Lion release first so the new hardware comes with it pre-installed.

    Just my opinion here...

    Until we see the delivery dates changes on apple.com for mac mini and macbook air from 24hrs to 3-5 days I don't expect to see Lion OS on the App store...

    My guess and this is just a guess, they won't come out until the last week of July...

    I remember being so excited for Leopard to come out that I nearly didn't go to a party. I did and realized there truly how little a few hours or days comes out to be. Enjoy life! Technology is supposed to improve our lives, not envelop them.

    Every other release I have been to (10.5 and 10.6) were at 6PM of that day... I realize those were box copies, but maybe it'll be at 6PM tonight... I will miss going to the Apple Store and waiting in line with other users to get my copy... The App Store distribution kills the social aspect of it all...

    If it comes out, it does. If it don't, then it might just be a day away...

    Apple's got up to the 31st, and the market will be just fine with that.
