Not a Mac user - what's the point of the Launchpad, if Dock already lists all your apps?

The Dock doesn't show all your installed apps. It only shows apps that you either want displayed or currently have running.

I'm willing to bet there will be more technical changes as well.

During the keynote it looked like they were still there but stripes instead of round lights.

I just looked at the Keynote demo of Lion. They're gone all together.

Here's a screenshot of Pages running. No dot or line down in the dock under it. Same with the App Store. It's running, but there's no indication of that.

And this is a bad thing? iOS had plenty to offer to OS X. Apple's bringing those innovations back over without bringing any of the "downsides" (like no sideloading of apps).

Don't read to much into it - the UI is probably far from the final one.

who gives a **** about that now, that is what snow leopard was for

Fix Finder? What's wrong with it?

it's terrible at networking, times out, doesn't remember passwords for SMB shares (maybe that's key chains fault) tabs would be great (liek total finder, which i love btw). I hate how hard it is to find out the exact path of where you are at, just does some dumb gui version with all the icons and crap. Windows Explorer IMO kills the finder. And why the fack can't I cut and paste yet?

yes agreed finder is just horrible shiftyninja.gif

Just like with Snow Leopard which included an improved disk eject feature laugh.gif

No dynamic rearrangement of window contents

When extracting from any file, the extracted file lays over another file, no snapping to grid

I could go on, but Finder just feels so bad

Like what ? iOS is an OS for mobile phones, if I wanted to get iOS, id buy an iPhone, OS X is a desktop OS. So much for the Lion being the king of the cats, seeing what Apple is bringing to the table with this release

I lived without app store before I can still live without. By the way what are Apple going to do now they've named it Lion? What comes after?

Like state-saving applications (I love the implication that a closed app is really no different than an open app other than it's not actively doing things), a new full-screen, no distractions paradigm when you want it, and the App Store. The Launchpad is nice as well. I don't see myself getting a lot of use out of it, but for people who don't really grasp the whole "Well, your application is installed, it's just in that Applications folder thing over there" (and trust me, there are a lot of those), this is a godsend.

Just because something is made for a mobile OS doesn't mean some of its features can't be adopted to a desktop OS.

Usually a desktop OS is where all the power is, while those features might be nice for a phone, they are child's play for an actual computer, there is nothing amazing in this Lion

Was that the only thing?

That's by design, that way you immediately see what file or folder is extracted. I think it's pretty clever actually.

I like the look of 'Mission Control' (I do not like the name). The App Store is basically an improved version of http://www.apple.com/downloads/ and doesn't look all that bad, but I doubt I'll get much use out of it. No interest in Launch Pad.
