The news about the next gen Mac OS came as a surprise to many in the Apple world. The new Mac OS X Lion will be available for just $29.99 starting July. Can you even imagine it to be so low priced, for a complete OS?
Well, you can say its not so complete. You will get the new Lion as an update over your existing Mac OS. And the update is available only as a download, there will be no disks or retailers. So what you have to do is log on to the new Mac App Store and download the 4GB download. There is no other way you can get the new OS.
So what are the pirates going to do as there are no disks and even the price of the new OS is so low? This will come as a very bad news for these people. And the update will be available for all your authorized Macs. So you dont have to worry about that as well.
It looks like Steve Jobs has been doing a lot of research on how the current market is and has been doing all he could to stop piracy. Well, some people may like this, and some may oppose it totally. It depends on how to look at it.
