Siracusa Does Lion: the Review

John Siracusa, writing for Ars Technica:

Over the past decade, better technology has simply reduced the number of things that we need to care about. Lion is better technology. It marks the point where Mac OS X releases stop being defined by what's been added. From now on, Mac OS X should be judged by what's been removed.

It seems like Siracusa has been hinting at his Mac OS Lion review for as long as Apple has been coding the OS. The review clocks in at 112 printed pages, or 19 pages on the web. In-depth, meticulous, exhaustive. Great stuff.
