Overview: OSX Lion

The anticipated release of Apples new Operating system named Lion will be released within a few weeks. In July you will be able to purchase OSX Lion for $29 which will give you the ability to install the new operating system right from the app store on up to 10 different machines with the same license. With OSX Lion the Server and Client operating systems are the same, however you do need to purchase the admin server tools from the app store for $49 in order to use OSX Lion as a server. We are going to highlight some key features we are looking forward to for a full list of features check out Apples site
