"People of Earth: Mac OS X Lion is about to be uncaged! Apple finally gave us a more accurate window for the release of the latest operating system release: July, which is only a couple of weeks days away. That may seem like a long time if you're eager to install it right now, but here are a few things to occupy you in the meantime and help make sure you're ready to cage the big cat on your own Mac when it escapes into the wild."
The big change, other than the ridiculously low upgrade price of $29.00 USD, is that this will be available from the Mac App Store, so now you don't have to make that trip to your favorite Apple retail outlet to get your copy. Over 250 new features and it will cost as much as the minor upgrade to Snow Leopard. And all that comes from a 4GB download. So in order to prepare for this, you do need to do a few things to make sure you are ready, which are outlined in this article. Things such as making sure your computer is compatible and verifying your applications will run are two of the biggest.
