OS X Lion Review Roundup
Unless you live under a rock, you probably know that OS X Lion is available to download on the Mac App Store.

“Get it, Lion rules!”
Lion is an evolution of OS X that’s instantly familiar to anyone coming from a previous version. It’s also well designed to be easy to learn for someone who’s never picked up a Mac before.
Lion is a solid update that brings a lot of new ideas to the desktop from the mobile space. Clearly, Apple is trying to make the Mac more attractive to its legions of iOS customers. … OS X is still OS X. And Lion is the best version yet.
