So, if that's what it is, I really don't see the fuss about it. Though they should rename duplicate to final copy or something.
I don't like the resume thing that much. When I close an app, I want it closed, turned off, not on anymore. Most likely I don't want it to save its "session." I like the idea of them making the red button always turn off the app, but I hope they don't make it by default that you just close the window, but the app is always on running in the background. I know its kinda like that way now, and for some stuff, like iTunes, its useful, its just I want to make sure, when I do want the app completely turned off, its off. I don't care if its using 95% less resources, I just want it off. I hope they don't take out Application Name - Quite application / Command + Q.
Full screen idea is kinda cool, but I have a 27 inch iMac because I want to be able to have a lot of apps open, at once, and see them them all. Not one giant app taking up the whole screen. I own a computer, not a portable device with a small screen. This means now if I want to change window size I will always have to use resize and drag my window to be bigger or smaller. Be nice if they just made a new function key that forces the app to full screen, or at least allow us to decided what we want the green button to do.
At the end of the day, I hope they keep OS X a computer OS.
[I just found this thread, thus my 'late' post here]
I agree with these sentiments.
While there are certainly some apps that I do want running much of the time --iCal, Preview, Text / Note / Journaling apps, that sort of thing-- there are certainly other apps that I want to be closed when I am done using it.
There is no reason for an app that I run one time a day or once a week, to be running in the background 24/7.
And yes, I would like a Final and Clean copy of a document, so that when I send it off to others as a final document, it is lean and trim and does not contain all my prior deletions. Shades of Microsoft Word "Fast Save" feature from years back. YIKES and YUCK!
And finally, I am also dismayed by what seems to be a trend towards making my Mac OS to be just a big iOS device.
Do you think that the Lion OS developers are writing code just on their iPods and iPads?
My desktop computer is my desktop computer, with a big screen so I can see several open windows at one time.
We do not spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on big screen computers just so that it acts like a magnified iPod/iPad.
I hope that Lion OS does not become the first ever Mac OS X version that I avoid.
