Mac OS X Lion – A preview

In Summer 2011, Apple will be launching the Mac OS X Lion, which incorporates some of the most popular features on iPad. Following are some of the highlights of the OS, in brief.
The Mac App Store – It’s the best way to find, purchase and download application for Mac.
Launchpad – It gives you instant access to your applications, in the iPad format.
Full Screen Apps – Just like the iPad, the App is displayed full screen, with no distractions, and an easy way to get back to all your other apps.
Mission Control – It gives you a bird’s eye view of everything, including the Dashboard and full screen apps, all in one place.
Gestures and animations – The Mac OS X Lion introduces smoother and more life like responses to gestures.
Auto Save -  Auto Save automatically saves your work, while you work, so that no manual saving is required.
 Versions – Mac OS X Lion automatically creates a version of the document, every time you open it and every hour while you are working on it.
Resume  - Resume lets you restart your Mac, for example, after a software update and return to what you were doing, with all the Apps exactly in the same place as you left them.
