is just one more example of pushing customers into things they otherwise wouldn't need to do.
I didn't NEED to upgrade from my LC 575, either.
I prefer to support the 3rd party developers directly, thus increasing their income stream (which most of them really need) and at the same time depriving Apple of 30% of unearned income, not just unearned but *undeserved*.
Own website: 100% of the profit, you're on your own for people actually finding your software, untrusted
App Store: 70% of the profit, found easily, known to be trustable software
I think most everyone'll take the latter.
I doubt I'll upgrade to Lion anyway.
Enjoy your PowerMac G5.
I don't want my desktop to be like my iPad.
So don't use those features.
my desktop to be like a desktop.
Why do you think you get to define what "desktop" means?
I don't need "full screen applications"
So don't use full-screen.
Someone at apple has lost their mind.
And someone out here thinks their vaunted 'windowing system' is being completely removed in Lion.
no one actually has to move to Lion
Until all the machines that run Snow Leopard are broken or worthlessly obsolete.
And perhaps Lion will be available on DVD as well, and will even allow the poor users to use.... WINDOWS
Again, get a clue. Full-screen is a feature, not a change. I use Lion and I've not once touched the full-screen button because I have no use for it nor do I use any applications right now that benefit from it.
Of course, this is the company that turned the orientation switch into an audio mute;
Get over yourself. They changed it back. Oh, and look! You actually have a CHOICE now. Tears a hole right in your Apple argument.
that made the iPad without cameras
that insists upon USB syncing
If you have a faster alternative, I'd love to hear it. Given that you have to plug everything in to charge, anyway. you may as well use a wired connection for syncing... particularly when it's far faster than wireless solutions.
that made the iPad case such that it can't accommodate the iPad's native connectors
^^^Never used an iPad case... or even seen one, apparently.^^^
Here comes Lion. Bend over.
Fear. Uncertainty. Doubt.
