Andy Ihnatko on Mac OS X Lion

Andy Ihnatko, writing for The Chicago Sun-Times:

"At the same time, 10.7 represents one of those dividing lines between the Past and the Present. Modern apps will require Lion. Increasingly over the coming year, apps that run fine in 10.6 will only be used by Civil War reenactors and the people who entered a sealed environment late last year to simulate the isolation of an 18-month mission to Mars."

Andy's 5000-word Mac OS X Lion review. I enjoy his writing for its humorous tone as much as its informative content. Just one paragraph in, you can tell that he loves this stuff.

His take-away: Lion contains a few misses among the hits, but overall its $29 price tag is a steal for the benefits it brings.
