Apple launched the eight version of its desktop operating system this month on July 20. Lion comes with more than 250 new features, and is now available for download from the Mac App Store.

Lion is the easiest OS X upgrade and at around 4GB, it is about the size of an HD movie from the iTunes Store. It include: new Multi-Touch gestures; system-wide support for full screen apps; Mission Control, an innovative view of everything running on your Mac; the Mac App Store, the best place to find and explore great software, built right into the OS; Launchpad, a new home for all your apps; and a completely redesigned Mail app.
