After 22 months of development, Apple has finally released the next major version of Mac OS X: 10.7 codename “Lion”.
First the availability details: new Macs will come with Lion preinstalled, but everyone else will have to get it from the Mac App Store. That’s right, no discs, no retail boxes of any kind.
We do expect them to continue making USB restore drives available to Mac buyers, and there will likely be a way to create one if needed.
Developers will get a “preview” version today, with customer availability in July.
Pricing is $29.99 this time around, and once bought you can install Lion on all of your App Store “Authorized” Macs. Read more
