Mac OS X 10.7 still a mystery but development coming along, showing up in web logs
Checking through web stats I noticed OS X Daily is getting frequent visits by individuals running Mac OS X 10.7, an operating system that generally nobody knows much about at the moment. Looking around on the web I found that we aren’t the only ones, with both MacRumors and MacNN reporting the same uptick in 10.7 user visits. Google Analytics shows the visitors as ‘Intel 10.7’ and it’s possible some are just user_agent spoofing but based on the wide reports I think it’s safe to assume it’s an early beta version being used by people inside Apple.
It really makes you wonder what 10.7 holds for Mac users future, there’s rumors of it being 64-bit only, having a new fancy GUI, more cloud integration and features, amongst other things, all of which are impossible to verify and are really based on nothing more than rumors and speculation. It’s safe to assume that Mac OS X 10.7 will probably not be called Ceiling Cat… but if MacRumors is right, perhaps we’ll get some more information and see a developer preview (sans new GUI, of course) at WWDC 2010?
