Also the lion is the ultimate cat, so im guessing this is the final OS X loll

Not to mention I don't believe Apple has ever had a secondary version number higher than 7 or 8. I think the longest lived System release was 7, which went all the way to 7.8, IIRC, while what was supposed to be System 8.6 became Mac OS 9.

Um, no, I meant multiple sources received the same information, including the same image, from Apple. That's how Apple works -- they send an e-mail with information about the event and an image. Think of the recent music event that had the "Apple guitar" that tons of sites published.

Believe it or not I do know the traits of Apple ;)

Just this particular time the lion looks shopped in / not as good as the previous images.

At college we have a whole bunch of those same Mac Pros running in our editing labs.

So, after all these years of mystery, .Neo, I believe you are studying in cinema or TV or something :p

I always wondered what you were doing with your Mac to know just about every application possible.

Back on topic, I?m thinking the following points will be covered :

- iLife '11

- iWork '11

- The picture definitely suggests Mac OS 10.7

Any computer upgrade is possible, but if it?s nothing revolutionary like 3D computers or a touch screen iMac, they will just skip this part IMO in the presentation and just put it on the site. The buzz generated by new software will make people more curious and they will still end up seeing the new computers.

What I want in iWork and OS X particularly is something axed towards both gaming and businesses. I?ll become an engineer in a year and a half and the Mac is not that much of a decent machine for this kind of stuff. Makes me wonder how OS X can be the best OS for science, you really have to develop your OWN applications. Now I would believe that.

If the next version is indeed the last of Mac OS X then maybe they will integrate and make Mac OS XI exactly like iOS, or maybe making iOS as the main OS on Macs. As popular as it is, iOS has millions of apps.

If they took iOS and put it on all there computers that would be the end of me purchasing Macs. iOS is great but it lacks the user interface and the software complexity which I enjoy in the full blown OS X. I'd move straight back to Windows if it happened.

Now I don't really think that iOS is going to replace there desktop software. I do think that a lot of the things iOS has pushed forward will end up coming to the Mac. Things like the App Store I believe that is coming to the Mac no mater what. I don't know how far off, who knows what Apple is planning but I do think a Mac App Store is coming.

And I wouldn't be surprised if they introduce a new Widget system where instead of running html/java code you are running iPhone apps. They have that UI to begin with (you know how iOS apps look so similar to the UI elements present in Widgets, especially things like Stocks and the Calculator and the Notification system, all made by Apple).

Obviously Multitouch has already arrived in a limited fashion with the Magic Trackpad and the Notebook multitouch trackpads. And I still think it will go further integrating it in to the displays somehow. Although it doesn't look ergonomically approachable right now we never know what they will devise to overcome that. Already we are seeing patent submissions that seem to depict multi-touch iMacs with stands that take the screen down to the desk.

I'm looking forward to this event. I hope Lion is really great or I might just be jumping ship back to Windows.

I think we'll see

  • Safari 5.5 beta using WebKit 2
  • Preview of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

YES YES! w00t.gif and maybe an update for frontrow (Apple TV like UI)

Maybe front row will load faster!!!!

Though I never use it, I can't imagine what more I would want in Mac OS. Snow Leopard is making me happy enough :) I'll be curious to see as what is new.

No stupid iOS or any similar **** for my MAC. iOS should remain for iphones/pads

I think elements from iOS could be incorporated into Mac OS X. Mainly app support. That'd be interesting. Though limited.

IOS could be of use on the dashboard maybe, but why people seem to want it as a main OS is beyond me!

w00t! I ran straight upstairs to our Apple specialist who said he didn't have much info but said he heard February as a special date (not sure how valid that is) but we'll see

  • updated Macbook Pro models
  • iLife '11
  • iWork '11
  • Safari 5.5 beta using WebKit 2
  • Preview of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion

Seems about right. Although I would've added "updated Macbook Air model" to the list.

Hopefully the rumours of iLife coming with some sort of Facetime inclusion become reality.

I hope Apple brings iWork suite to iPhone and iPod Touch. Its badly needed. I like how WP7 has full MS Office in it. Apple should do the same and I have a good feeling, it will be happening.

Personally, I'd prefer Microsoft Office on iOS instead.

Cant be, since we already know that OS 11 will use bear names.

Why on earth would it be called OS 10 11? :blink:

Well, the platform is called "OS X," so instead of calling it "10.0," "10.1," etc, think of it more like "OS X 1.0," "OS X 1.1," etc. Thus, what we might call Mac OS 11 could be "OS X 2.0," etc.

Makes no sense, I know, but when have version numbers ever made sense?

It was only ever called OS X when they reached OS 10.

It currently doesn't make much sense to call it OS X 10.1 > 6 either. But even less sense with OS X 11

Lol sure.

I don't know why I bother quoting anything you say on here because as soon as someone questions you about something you've said it just devolves in to 'oh I'm not arguing with you about this!, I'm to good to debate with you'.

Look dude if you are going to say something be ready to back it up or just don't say it in the first place.

You got your answer. Move on.

OS X is pronounced OS Ten. I guess you could think of it as OS X.1, X.2, X.3, etc.

Whatever, they call it, it will be better than the 3.1, 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, Vista, 7 nonsense that Windows has gone through. :laugh:
