Lion roars at last

Lion is here, and we've convened an early-morning edition of the Macworld Podcast to talk about Apple's latest Mac OS X release. I’m joined by editorial director Jason Snell, senior editor Jonathan Seff, and staff editor Serenity Caldwell to discuss the release.

While Lion rightly gets the bulk of our attention, we also have a few words about the MacBook Air models announced Wednesday by Apple as well as the apparent end of the MacBook.

Show Notes

To read about Lion in all its vivid detail, Jason Snell’s Mac OS X Lion review is a good place to start. You should also check out our Mac OS X Lion page, as we plan on posting detailed looks at Lion’s various features throughout the day and the rest of this week.

During the podcast, Jon mentions Scroll Reverser, a utility that brings Lion’s new way of scrolling to Macs running Snow Leopard. We also talk about which applications will be able to run on the new operating system—our colleague Christopher Breen shows you how to check your apps for Lion compatibility and answers questions about Lion’s lack of support for PowerPC apps.
