    OS Xi, or iOSX?

    Tend to agree.

    OS X has had a good run, and with 10.7 release late in 2011 we will see OS X end around the 2013/2014. By then iOS will be version 7 and the convergence would have happened.
    There are two major products that came out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX.

    Gee, that is really, really sad. I know things have to move on, but think about it - OSX was the most futuristic system at it's time and, without it, we would have still had the platinum user interface .

    I think OSX 10.7 will still have Aqua, and marble will never come. It'll just be the "Aqua+marble" interface that we have on our iPhones, iPads and iPods from then on.

    But hey, let's not get all upset! We've still yet to see what 10.7 has to offer!!

    Well, OSX has been going for a decade now... about time we had XI.

    From Answers: Big cats sizes can vary from species to species. Adult male Siberian tigers can be as heavy as 700 pounds and as long as 13 feet. Adult male African lions can be as heavy as 260 pounds and as long as 7 feet. This would mean that the tiger can be bigger. On average, a Tiger will be larger than a Lion. The Siberian Tiger has been known to weigh over 850lbs, but average 660lbs. The African Lion is usually weighs 500lbs.

    Watch out for the stuff they take out of Mac OS X. What have been the poor performers of it?

    Anyway maybe after Lion we can have Snow Lion?

    iOS on the desktop? I can't think of anything worse. I barely get any use out of it on my iPhone, one would hope they wouldn't ruin the desktop with it as well.

    Thankfully, I won't believe it until I see it. Nor do I think I will see it any time soon. The single window applications geared towards iOS devices will go over about as well as a lead balloon on the desktop. One of the big reasons I went for a used MacBook over an iPad is the ability to view multiple windows at the same time, manipulate them at will, run any number of third party applications and devices off of it and actually get some serious work done with it.

    If they were to build all of that kind of functionality into iOS, well, you'd have Mac OS X.

    Maybe they'll bring back "Aqua" for Sea Lion. There is also a "mountain lion" so they still have the flexibility to pull a snow leopard after this release.

    I still personally think that if we are going have Lion for 10.7.

    Then 10.8 could be....



    Or maybe not.

    couldn't have picked a better time to hold the event, 3 days before my birthday. Maybe some of the release stuff will be directed towards those who love the iPhone but have never used a mac. Guaranteed stats on number of macs sold, maybe an apology about neglecting us saying 'we are sorry about all the iOS talk...' (lol, doubt it). iLife '11 almost certain i reckon, new macbook pro would be nice, my iMac is coming up to 1 year old and I might like a new laptop. Lower prices would be great considering at this exact moment the AUD is stronger than the USD not by much but anyway should see almost the same pricing.

    EDIT: possibility of iWork '11 as well? box set here i come or a new mac?

    Heres my predictions:
    -Opens with the usual spiel about the amount of Macs sold
    -Says that today the are really going to enhance the Mac
    -Starts with iLife, says that they are wildly popular apps
    -iLife '11: all new iPhoto, iMovie enhanced gets more of its old features back, iWeb gets a few new features, GarageBand gets tighter integration with iMovie, and iDVD is dead
    -Moves onto iWork, claims they are the most popular productivity apps on the Mac
    -iWork '11: Keynote is given its usual set of new effects and transitions, Numbers given the odd new feature here or there and Pages is given new templates etc.
    -After iWork, Steve says that great apps require a great foundation.
    -Says that Snow Leopard was the most successful version of OS X ever etc.
    -Today they are going to introduce 10.7: Lion
    -Biggest new feature is an overhauled UI - biggest change since Aqua in 2000
    -iChat decked out with FaceTime interoperability and support for more IM networks
    -Many other changes all around the OS
    -Lion to drop in Late 2011, developer preview today
    -After OS X, says there is one more thing: All new range of MacBooks
    -New Air: rumoured 11" design: way thinner, cheaper etc.
    -New plastic Macbook: now on an i3, longer battery etc.
    -New Pro: now with USB 3, other IO changes, faster CPU, graphics etc.
    -The End-

    EDIT: So I have been thinking a bit, and here are some other things that might drop:
    -10.6.5: I myself have been using 10.6.5 for a looong time and it is rock solid now.
    -One would think that Lion would prompt a new version of Safari, which could be quite interesting considering that they just put Safari 5 out in June. It would be interesting to see would they can do in just four months.

    I agree with almost all of that but the release dates, and i also think they may drop the whitebook for the unibody pro.
