Mac OS X Lion isn’t one of those forget-about-it, yawn-inducing operating system upgrades. It’s a major one, with big features—both the kind consumers love, and also behind-the-scenes ones for technical types. There’s a lot to it, with over 250 new features. You may want a book about it, like a new Dummies book about Mac OS X Lion, but how about a very quick, very brief preview of three standout features.
- Full-screen apps
Let’s face it: Apps, of the type available on the iPhone and iPad, are just a pleasure to use, and it’s partly because you give your full attention to them. Lion brings full-screen apps to the Macintosh.
- Mission Control
There’s a lot happening on your computer, and sometimes you just need to have a way of seeing what you’ve got going on. That’s the idea behind Mission Control.
- Versions and Auto Save
Have you lost documents? Of course you have. (Who hasn’t?) With Versions and Auto Save, Lion gives you auto-saving of your work, as well as a way to go back and see changes you’ve made.
